Amazing Sequoia Giant Tree (Sequoiadendron giganteum)!

Unlike bonsai trees, Sequoias are the world's naturaly largest trees in terms of total volume Sequoias grow to an average height of 50–85 metres (160–279 ft) and 6–8 metres (20–26 ft) in diameter. Record trees have been measured to be 94.8 metres (311 ft) in height and 17 metres (56 ft) in diameter. The oldest known Giant Sequoia based on ring count is 3,500 years old.

Wood from mature giant sequoias is highly resistant to decay, but due to being fibrous and brittle, it is generally unsuitable for construction. From the 1880s through the 1920s, logging took place in many groves in spite of marginal commercial returns.

Due to their weight and brittleness, giant sequoia trees would often shatter when they hit the ground, wasting much of the wood. Loggers attempted to cushion the impact of sequoias by digging trenches and filling them with branches. Still, as little as 50% of the timber is estimated to have made it from groves to the mill. The sequoia wood was used mainly for shingles and fence posts, or even for matchsticks.

Giant sequoia is a very popular ornamental tree in many areas. Sequoias are successfully grown in most of western and southern Europe, the Pacific Northwest of North America north to southwest British Columbia, the southern United States, southeast Australia, New Zealand and central-southern Chile.

The natural distribution of giant sequoias is restricted to a limited area of the western Sierra Nevada, California. Sequoias occur in scattered groves.

The giant sequoia was well known to Native American tribes living in its area. Native American names for the Sequoia species include wawona, toos-pung-ish and hea-mi-withic, the latter two in the language of the Tule River Tribe.
