The largest tree by volume The world’s largest tree is a stately giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) known as General Sherman in California’s Sequoia National Park.

This majestic arboreal master is about 52,500 cubic feet in volume.

As described by the National Parks Service, computing the volume of a standing tree is the practical equivalent of calculating the volume of an irregular cone.

For purposes of volume comparison, they explain, only the trunk of a giant sequoia is measured, including the restored volume of basal fire scars.

And while it hulks at a 274.9 feet in height, it doesn’t come close to the tallest tree, also in the Golden State. That honor goes to Hyperion, a 379.7-foot-tall redwood.

Surprisingly, at 2,000 years old, General Sherman is only a middle-aged giant sequoia, based on ring counts other sequoias are believed to be more than 3,220 years old.

But, even so, the General beats all other trees when it comes to bulk.
