Sequoia, common name for a group of huge, majestic evergreen trees characterized by a columnar, reddish brown trunk rising 30 m (100 ft) or more above a buttressed base. Notice the person in the picture.
Giant sequoias may reach diameters of up to 30 feet (9 m), with bark thickness of up to 24 inches (60 cm). The buttress at the base of the trunk forms a natural support structure.

The giant sequoia, Sequoiadendron giganteum, is the most massive of all living forms, growing to heights of 272 feet (83 meters). It is believed to live 2400 to 4000 years, making it one of the longest living species on earth.

Fossil remains of sequoia trees have been found in geological strata as old as the Jurassic Period. Tannins in the wood protected it from decay. The Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona consists largely of extinct sequoia species.
   The best known tree in the Giant Forest is the General Sherman Tree, which is more than 2300 years old. It stands 275 ft (84 m) tall and has a circumference of 103 feet (31 m) at its base.".Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
