Sequoia National Park

Sequoia National Park is situated in the southern Sierra Nevada. It is famous for its giant sequoia trees, including the General Sherman tree – the largest tree on Earth by volume. The General Sherman tree is located in Giant Forest, which is home to five of the top ten largest trees in the world.
Two wildfires in California – the Colony Fire and Paradise – are devouring parts of the national park. Last year’s fire has burned down a third of all sequoia grove area across the Sierra Nevada, the only region in the world where the giant sequoia occurs naturally.
