What  connection  does  this  tree  have  to  the  world  of  IT ?



The  town  of  Palo  Alto , California , home  to  some  of  the  heavyweights  of  the  hardware  and  software  industry, gets  its  name  from  a  Sequoia  tree  named  El Palo  Alto ( means  ‘tall  stick’ ) . The  tree  is  also  visible  on  the  seal  of  the  Stanford  University .
