What is the Most Massive Tree Ever?


The world's most massive tree ever (by trunk-size) was the Lindsey Creek tree, a coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) in California, USA. It had a total trunk volume of 2,549 cubic meters (90,000 cubic ft) and a mass of 3,300 tonnes (3,248 tons). The tree blew over in a storm in 1905. The name is widely thought to honor Sequoyah, also known as George Guess, inventor and publisher of the Cherokee alphabet.
