    Photos: Wold's largest Redwood Trees

    Looks like I'm going to be moving north this month, but I managed to get a decent photo collection of the largest known redwood trees. Meaning coast redwoods: Sequioa sempervirens.

    Actually, one of them, the Lost Monarch, does have a base wider than General Sherman Sequoiadendron, although the latter has more wood volume. But Lost Monarch's DBH appears to be greater. The photos all begin at:

    http://www.mdvaden.com/grove_of_titans.shtml

    The largest 3 in order are:

    1. The Lost Monarch in Jedediah Smith Redwoods
    2. Iluvatar in Prairie Creek State Park
    3. Del Norte Titan in Jedediah Smith Redwoods

    5 is El Viejo Del Norte in Jedediah Smith Redwoods, but I'm not sure which is supposed to be number 4 in order.

    There are some fairly decent size photos of some of those titans in my redwood albums - links available on that page.

    I have some large image files in case someone may be working on a class project and need to make a poster of something. Most of the vertical panorama photo stitch images will have a large .jpg file available.

    The images or Iluvatar need to remain very limited to help keep the grove undisclosed. It's quite different looking. It's in Atlas Grove, which was my photographing site a few weeks ago. I will probably return to Atlas Grove this week, before I move north. I'd also like to get some better images of the Del Norte Titan in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park this week too.

    RE: Photos: Wold's largest Redwood Trees

    Magnificent photos. I have some Giant Seq. and Coast Redwoods along with a few other western conifirs here in Knoxville. I started collecting them about 4 years ago before we even built the house here. The Douglas Firs seem best suited for this area as best I can tell at this point. I will continue my collection and see how these guys do.

    Thought I'd have a little fun today. I posted on my titans redwood page, that I challenge Richard Preston referring to Michael Taylor as the discoverer of Atlas Grove.

    Single tree's significance to the end of naming trees - yes. But groves - not.

    Markings I found within the grove have an identifiable name - one not lost to time. A name with some kind of significance.

    Had I discovered Atlas Tree for significance, and seen the markings, I'd probably have just called the grove "The Grove".
