DIMENSIONS: 30" H x 24" W. This species includes the tallest living trees on Earth, reaching up to 115.9 m (380.1 ft) in height (without the roots) and up to 8.9 m (29 ft) in diameter at breast height. These trees are also among the oldest living things on Earth. Before commercial logging and clearing began by the 1850s, this massive tree occurred naturally in an estimated 810,000 ha 2,000,000 acres along much of coastal California (excluding southern California where rainfall is not sufficient) and the southwestern corner of coastal Oregon within the United States. Known for sky-scraping forests unique to this corner of the world, California draws visitors from all over the globe to the land of towering giants.Defining the landscape at mesmerizing heights, and with a truly distinctive appearance, these ancient forest stands are made of up sequoias and redwoods, some of the most fascinating and unique trees on Earth. Sequoias and giant redwoods are often referred to interchangeably, though they are two very different, though equally remarkable, species of tree. Both naturally occurring only in California, these two species share a distinctive cinnamon-colored bark and the proclivity for growing to overwhelming heights. Both also require very specific, though very distinct, climates to survive. Known as both the giant redwood and the coastal redwood, Sequoia sempervirens differs from its relative the giant sequoia, Sequoiadendron giganteum, primarily in the environment it requires. As its nickname suggests, giant or coastal redwoods thrive in the moist, humid climate of the Northern California coast, where marine fog delivers precise conditions necessary for its growth. The fog adds moisture to the soil and helps trap it there by lowering the rate of evaporation. Giant redwoods typically outreach their giant cousins in height, standing up to 378 feet tall. Giant sequoias thrive in higher elevation habitats than giant redwoods and grow naturally only along the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, primarily between 5,000 and 7,000 feet in elevation. Giant sequoias require the periodic dry heat of the mountains in order for their cones to open and release seeds. Still reaching impressive heights of up to 311 feet, giant sequoias are typically shorter than their coastal relations.
What they lack in height, however, they make up for in size, usually outweighing giant redwoods substantially. Sequoioideae, popularly known as redwoods, is a subfamily of coniferous trees within the family Cupressaceae. The trees are found in scattered groves on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevadas of California at elevations between 900 and 2,600 meters (3,000 and 8,500 feet). They were once reputed as the oldest living things, but the enormous stumps were examined in tree-ring studies. They were found to be less than 4,000 years old (bristlecone pines are older, and a clonal king's holly plant [Lomatia tasmanica] in Tasmania was found to be more than 43,000 years old).Through sheer incredible volume, giant sequoias claim the title of largest tree in the world. Known as General Sherman, this most giant of sequoias weighs a staggering 2.7 million pounds and stands 275 feet tall from its base, which is more than 100 feet wide. Not only is General Sherman the largest living tree, it also owns the title of largest living organism on the planet. This item is in the category "Art\Paintings".
