(Giant Sequoia, Weeping Giant Sequoia)

This is a weeping cultivar of giant sequoia (or Bigtree), the drought-resistant redwood with a world record for the largest trunk circumference. Though often confused, the narrow coastal redwood is taller, thinner, more pointed and darker-green than this one. Bigtree is found in just a small area on middle elevation west slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The region experiences snow in winter and long dry summers.
