This circular arrangement of trees, found in Big Basin Sate Park in California, is called a 'redwood cathedral.’

“This beautiful arrangement of a ring of redwood trees occurs when a giant coast redwood dies,” writes Richard Masoner. “New trees sprout from the base of the trunk from adventitious buds, resulting in this circular arrangement. It's really pretty stunning to see in person.”
