Sequoia National Park

There it is! The largest tree on earth. Directly in front of you stands the biggest tree on the planet, the General Sherman Tree. Some trees grow taller, and some are bigger around, but no tree has greater mass. The amount of space taken up by its trunk is greater than that of any other tree.
Bottom portion of the marker; The General loses a limb-Look closely—the General Sherman Tree has changed since this photo (left) was taken. Can you spot the large limb in the photo that is now missing from the tree itself? The second-largest branch on the Sherman Tree fell in January 2006. No one witnessed the crash. Thankfully, it crushed only some fencing and pavement (right).
