Giant SequoiaSequoiadendron giganteum
Giant sequoias are well-named, being arguably the largest trees in the world. These forest giants are an awe-inspiring sight. They are most famously found in the protected parks of The Golden State, where the giant sequoia serves as one of the state trees.
The giant sequoia also functions in a variety of landscapes. They can serve as not only a novelty specimen, but also a practical and serviceable tree when space allows.
