Giant Redwood

I just realised that I didn't post anything yesterday. Too busy working and discussing anarchism.
So here's a whopper to catch up: Sequoiadendron giganteum aka the giant redwood and Wellingtonia. It is native to North West America and one of three 'redwoods' (along with Coast Redwood and the Dawn Redwood). It can grow to enormous dimensions, as seen in the General Sherman which is thought to be the largest single-stem tree on earth. It is in the order Pinales which contains all the conifers. It is in the Cupressaceae or cypress family.
