General Sherman Tree

The General Sherman Tree is a giant sequoia.  Sequoias only reproduce through seed, and this particular tree started growing 2,000 years ago in what is now the Kings Canyon National Park. The General Sherman tree is among the tallest, widest and longest-lived of all trees on the planet.  The General Sherman tree is still growing and according to the California State Park’s website, “has added enough wood each year to construct a five or six room house. “   Purrs,  Gulliver
