The biggest tree

General Sherman
Read and talk with Ross

In terms of sheer volume, the giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) known as General Sherman is a monster of a tree -- at 52,508 cubic feet, it's the world's largest tree, and perhaps the world's largest living thing. General Sherman is located in California's Sequoia National Park and is one of the park's premier attractions. The closest rival is a coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens), nicknamed Lost Monarch, located somewhere in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park in northern California. Lost Monarch measures about 42,500 cubic feet.  Use the link
