If you've ever seen a giant sequoia tree in real life you already know just how massive these trees can get. The grandfather of all sequoia trees is known as the General Sherman tree, which happens to be the current largest living tree on the entire planet. While sequoia trees are not the tallest or the widest trees that grow on earth, they are a powerful combination of tall and wide which makes them the biggest trees on earth by volume and weight. The General Sherman tree has secured it's spot in the record books as the biggest tree in the world, but there are plenty of other sequoia trees in the same neighborhood ranking in the top ten biggest trees on earth as well.
The video posted by TailHappyTV uses some clever comparisons to relate just how big the General Sherman tree is and how large it's sibling trees in the Sequoia National forest can get. If you've never seen one of these giant sequoia trees in person you should definitely add it to your bucket list of things to do. Since there is only one place on earth where you can see these trees, you'll need to make a dedicated trip to the Sierra Nevada mountains to see the biggest tree on earth. Taking a hike through the giant forest can be a magical experience that changes your life.
