General Sherman

Ever wondered what the largest living thing is? Well we have the answer. The General Sherman. The General Sherman takes the name of a Giant Sequoia. This towering tree reaches a height of 275 feet. During a 2002 research of the tree, the volume of the tree�s trunk measured 1487 cubic meters. This giant sequoia is located in the Giant Forest, inside Sequoia National Park. The forest, as well as the park, get their names from their giant sequoia trees. This famous park is located in California. You won�t find these kinds of trees at any nursery online.

As usual, it takes trees quite a few years to reach maturity. The General Sherman is thought to be 2,300 to 2,700 years old. Think your local tree nursery has trees that old? I do not think so.

The General Sherman was named in 1879 by naturalist James Wolverton. He named the tree after American Civil War general William Tecumseh Sherman. Mr. Wolverton served as a lieutenant in the 9th Indiana Calvary under Sherman. After close comparison with the General Grant, the General Sherman was named the largest tree in 1931. The largest tree is measured by the wood trunk volume. Perennials are an interesting part of nature to observe.

As said before the General Sherman of trees of its kind can not be purchased at a plant nursery. If you are looking for any kind of tree for landscaping you will want to go with a �not so famous� species of plants. Tree nurseries can be found anywhere online.
