Hint 04

Research ‘GENSHERMAN’ or Gen Sherman. It has a relation with all the trees on the borders of the card. Some trees look way older than others by the way.

Solution of this Step
General Sherman (Gen. Sherman) is the biggest tree of the world, measured by volume. It was named in 1879 after soldier William T. Sherman who served in the American Civil War. The tree is located in California. Previously we found the text ‘GEN SHERMAN START AT NAMEDAY’. Therefore one of those facts is truly important, the year the tree General Sherman received its name. That is the year of 1879. The text ‘start at’ indicates that we should count something. This has a direct link with all the trees on the borders of the card with different ages. You should count the number of annual rings for every tree, and add that to the starting year of 1879. This should give you the following years, starting at the left bottom and moving clockwise: 1900, 1889, 1898, 1889, 1893, 1903, 1885, 1896, 1887 and 1892.
