sequoia

either of two huge Californian coniferous trees (the redwood Sequoia sempervivens or the giant sequoia Sequoiadendron giganteum), that can reach heights of up to 100 metres and are the largest terrestrial organisms. They are among the oldest living organisms in the world, taking perhaps 2000 years to reach their mature size. The oldest sequoia, called General Sherman, is thought to be between 3000 and 4000 years old, standing 83 metres tall and with a diameter of more than 9 metres.
