Giant Sequoia specimens are the most massive trees on Earth. While the present-day distribution of this species is limited to a small area of California, USA; it used to be more spread and covered larger territories. The giant sequoia is listed as an endangered species by the IUCN, with fewer than 80,000 trees remaining. The Monteverde USA® Giant Sequoia is a substantial in size writing instrument that is inspired by the eternal beauty of these magnificent trees. The design combines high-quality resin in green-striped shades with a beautiful solid walnut ring with silver accents that adorns the cap. The barrel is tastefully engraved with the Monteverde USA® and Trees of the World logos, complementing the overall look. The Giant Sequoia is available in fountain pen and ballpoint modes. The fountain pen is equipped with a stainless steel JoWo #6 nib engraved with the Monteverde USA® logo and fills via a standard cartridge or converter (included). The nib is available in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, 1.1mm Stub, and Omniflex point sizes. The twist-action ballpoint pen accepts standard Monteverde USA® refills P1 and P4 (Parker® style). Each Monteverde USA® pen features a lifetime warranty and is sold in a luxurious gift box. Monteverde USA® is committed to the preservation of our endangered trees and forests and will donate a portion of the proceeds from the Trees of the World collection to organizations that work towards furthering that goal.
Trees are an important part of our ecosystem, providing clean air and essential habitats for all living creatures. There are numerous trees of the World and all of them have an important role in nature. Trees have contributed to our existence since the beginning of humankind and have long signified natural beauty, resilience, balance, longevity, and connection to Earth. From cleaning the water we drink and the air we breathe, trees have also sparked the inspiration for poetry, stories, and art. Monteverde USA® Trees of the World collection pays homage to these mystical and majestic living beings. The Collection features Giant Sequoia, Avenue of the Baobabs, and Dragon Tree.
