The Sequoia tree is so large that getting a photo of the entire tree is impossible without a wide-angle lens. I used a 16 mm wide-angle lens on this shot, but still had to back up about 100 yards to get them all in. And these are young trees.
Sequoias are a separate and distinct specie from the Redwood. Redwoods are taller than Sequoia, but not near as stout. For example, a Redwood grows to 380′, has 12″ thick bark, a base diameter of 22′ and lives 2,000 years. The Sequoia grows to 310′, has 31″ thick bark, a base diameter of 40′ and lives 3,200 years. Redwoods are found in a narrow strip along California’s northern coast, where Sequoias grow on the west slope of the Sierra Nevada range.
Now you know.
