The General Sherman Sequoia is the largest tree in the world...reaching 275 feet into the sky...measuring 103 feet in circumference and is over 2,200 years old. I am sure most of us, at times, have seen pictures of this tree but I must say any pictures we have seen does not due it justice. It is truly a magnificent tree to behold. People just stand in awe and stare at it. It is not the oldest or the tallest tree in the world but the largest tree in volume. All I can say is "WOW"!
