Synopsis
When Porky repairs Petunia's damaged tree, Cicero takes a misleading photo that makes the tree seem to be huge. The government, thinking Porky is a great tree surgeon, sends him to Big Tree National Park to find what ails "General Smedley," the worlds oldest and tallest redwood tree. Porky and Cicero find a pesky woodpecker is pecking holes all over the tree and have to figure out a way to get him to stop.

Indexer Notes

The tree's name, "General Smedley," is a takeoff on the "General Sherman" tree in Sequoia National Park, which is one of the tallest trees in the world. Script, pencils, and inks credits for this sequence from Alberto Becattini (May 14, 2007)
