Giant sequoias are the world's largest trees. They are simply impossible to miss, and show us how tall life forms in our world can really be. They grow to an average height of 50–85m (160–279ft) and 6–8m (20–26ft) in diameter. Record trees have been measured at 94.8m (311ft) in height and over 17m (56ft) in diameter.
