A Square of Rings

Tree rings of a giant sequoia, ancient trees that grow only in a narrow altitude band in the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California. They are some of the oldest living things on the planet. Can you count the years this one survived by the rings?

Join Becky’s July Squares: TreeSquare. It must be square and it must related to or contain a tree or an aspect of a tree.

General Sherman

General Sherman is the largest living organism, by volume, on the planet. It is a giant sequoia tree in Sequoia National Park in California.

It is 2200 years old, weighs over 2.7 million pounds, has a diameter of just over 36 feet, a circumfrerence of 103 feet at the base, and is 275 feet tall.

Native to California, the giant sequoia occupies a 260-mile stretch of the western slope of the Sierra Nevada, primarily between 5,000 and 7,000 feet in elevation.
