He spies no redwood trees

I enjoyed the article Spying on Whidbeys Sights in the Weds, Oct. 10, issue of The Whidbey News-Times. I suspect that I am also one of many who checked out the article about Whidbey Island by Lindsay Moran in the Sept. 21st edition of The New York Times.
Lindsay Moran, a former CIA employee and author of the article, refers to the tunnels of towering redwoods on Whidbey Island in the first paragraph of the article. As far as I know, there are no redwoods on Whidbey Island; at least, no towering tunnels of them.
We have many Douglas firs and a number of madronas, in addition to a variety of other trees.
Sorry, Lindsay no redwoods. I trust that you were more attentive to detail when you worked for the CIA.
