Another view of our famous Sequoiadendron giganteum, looking north along Monmouth Avenue from the administration building. Historic Campbell Hall is to the left.
Giant sequoia from the administration building
The giant sequoia is one of the most massive trees in the world as well as one of the tallest. It has been known to reach heights of 300' with a 29' trunk diameter. Equally impressive is its lifespan. The oldest known Giant Sequoia based on ring count is 3,200 years old!
Our tallest sequoia tree is well known throughout the Willamette Valley for it's annual tree lighting in early December.
