LARGEST TREE IN THE WORLD
Location : Giant Forest of Sequoia National Park in Tulare County, California, USA.
The General Sherman Tree is the world’s largest tree, measured by volume. It stands 275 feet (83 m) tall, and is over 36 feet (11 m) in diameter at the base. Sequoia trunks remain wide high up. Sixty feet above the base, the Sherman Tree is 17.5 feet (5.3 m) in diameter.
Was wondering of the lifetime experiences that this tree must have been through.
Of how many seasons it must have seen
Of how it must have survived through the storms
As well as enjoyed the beauty of springtines
Of the countless lives it must have generously sheltered
And continues to do so….
Strengthened by nature
Thriving in the surviving
A Salute to the tree.
