Giant sequoias (Sequoiadendron giganteum) are the most massive tree species on earth. The genus sequoiadendron can be traced to the Triassic Period of 200 million years ago. The giganteum is the only surviving member of the sequoiadendron genus. The sequoiadendrons were the dominant trees in North America and Europe from the Jurassic to the Cretaceous. They reigned from 180 to 35 million years ago.
The conditions that the giant sequoias of the Sierra Nevada’s found favorable are many. The Sierra Nevada Mountains crest at around 14,000 feet in elevation. The crest runs from northwest to southeast in central California. The eastern slope is very steep and rocky. The western slope declines in elevation more gradually toward the west to the central valley of California.
