Giant Sequoia Trees

Giant Sequoia tree in Giant Sequoia National Monument

Giant Sequoias are the largest trees by volume in the world, and are one of the tallest and longest-living trees.  Giant Sequoias can grow over 300 feet tall, 50 feet in diameter at the base, weigh over 2 million pounds, and live over 3,000 years.

We did not visit Sequoia National Park because we were there just a few years ago.  But we saw hundreds of Giant Sequoia trees in three other parks:

Giant Sequoia National Monument
Sequoia National Forest
Yosemite National Park
