White Woodland Privilege


Albino redwood
An 'albino' redwood is a redwood tree which is unable to produce chlorophyll, and so has white needles instead of the normal green. In order to survive it must join its roots to the roots of a normal redwood, usually the parent tree from whose base it has sprouted, from which it obtains nutrition as a parasite.

Your Say

Since it's a parasite it should be called a bluewood.

It'll come to ya.
