Answer

  • Giant Sequoia is the world's largest tree in terms of total volume. They grow to an average height of 50-85 m (150-280 ft) and 5-7 m (16-23 ft) in diameter. Sequoia are found at elevations of 1,400–2,150 meters and can live to be 3,000 years old. 
  • Believed to be around 2,500 years old, General Sherman is the mightiest giant sequoia still standing. The volume of its trunk alone makes it the largest non-clonal tree by volume. Sherman can be found in Sequoia National Park in California, where five of the 10 largest trees in the world exist.
