When he sat on his mountaintop in La Jolla, California, and told lyric children's stories, Ted Geisel, whom we all call Dr. Know Suess, discovered like the "Cat in the Hat" and "Green Eggs and Ham" the rundown, but noble Monterrey cypress tree.
Now the tree the locals say inspired "The Lorax" has disappeared forever, and why it's gone is a mystery, Tim Graham told the US TODAY. The only cypress in Ellen Browning Scripps Park, La Jolla, fell and died last week.
"The city is still trying to pinpoint the cause, and the Monterrey cypress has been estimated to be between 80 and 100 years old," Graham said.
The city hopes to be able to plant a replacement tree nearby.
"I speak for the trees"
The California Coast Monterey Cypress can reach up to 2,000 years Park Tree set off the story of 1971, when the Once-ler mowed all the Truffula trees and the trees Threatened by them dependent creatures, it is said on a website of the city in the midst of environmental destruction.
"I'm the Lorax, I speak for the trees," he says in the book. "I speak for the trees, because the trees have no tongues."
