In a Nutshell:

* Giant Sequoias are the world's largest trees in terms of total volume (technically, only 7 living Giant Sequoia exceed the 42,500 cubic feet (1,200 m 3 ) of the Lost Monarch Coast Redwood tree ). They grow to an average height of 50–85 m (165–280 ft) and 6–8 m (18–24 ft) in diameter. Record trees have been measured to be 94.8 m (311 ft) in height and 17 m (57 ft) in diameter.
* This is a vast tree in its native area, perhaps 60-100 feet tall in the eastern USA and much taller in California. It is a beautiful, dense and oval-conical tree when young, with a narrow conical crown atop a bare trunck in maturity. The blue-green needles are up to 1/2" and it produces 1 1/2 - 3" cones. The spongy reddish-brown bark is ridged and furrowed and it is native to the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. more...
* This species is the biggest (but not the tallest) tree in the world and can weigh up to 2000 tonnes. It is also a very long-lived tree in the wild, specimens have been found that are 3500 years old.
* An easily cultivated, fast-growing tree, it prefers a deep rich soil and a sunny sheltered position. more...
* Trunks of mature trees in groves are generally free of branches to a height of 20–50 m, but solitary trees will retain low branches. more...
