There are many things that existed on the surface of this earth, even before the existence of humans, that many of us are not aware of. But thank goodness for civilization, now everything is in the Guinness Book of Records.

According to the Guinness World Records. The world's largest living tree is the giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum), called General Sherman, in Sequoia National Park in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, USA.

Total Sherman trees were measured by volume. It is 275 feet (83 m) high and over 36 feet (11 m) in diameter at the base. It weighs about 1,385 tons. Like many trees in the park, he was named a leader in the recent civil war in the 1870s.

The report states that Based on a 2002 study, General Sherman was estimated to be 2,000 years old, although it is believed that there are much older specimens, possibly up to 4,000 years old, as the size of this species does not always correlate with age. .
