The attentive reader may recall an older post I did regarding the largest tree in New Zealand, Tane Mahuta (see it again by clicking here).
I thought I would mention a trip I once made to Sequoia National Park in California to witness the enormous Sequoia trees there. Hopefully the photos will illustrate just how vast they are…and here lives General Sherman, the largest living tree on Earth by volume.
Interestingly, sequoia seeds require fire to germinate and therefore they carry out controlled burnings to facilitate this process and thus preserve this incredible tree for the future.
If you are ever in California and you are thinking of visiting Yosemite, make sure you also see Sequoia…nothing prepares you for this…even on pictures…
