Amongst the historic and revered graves of pioneers in the old Salt Lake City graveyard is the largest giant sequoia of the whole valley. It is well watered in this dry and arid land of deseret from the Uintas giving it life amongst the dead. If you are looking for it, search for Orson Pratt grave and tree is east of the grave.Taken by Judy 8/29/13.
Little America hotel and conference center is graciously surrounded by the largest tree in America. They are well cared for and one can see the sequoias surrounding the entire block at 6th South and 1st West. The Grand America to the east also is home to a half dozen giant sequoias. Both hotels are owned by the late R. Earl Holding.
This is located at south side of 2400 East Sunnyside Ave. on the way to This is the Place Monument. The winters are covered in snow and summer season quite hot. This was taken by a neighbor, Alex, whom was surprised to see a giant sequoia growing nearby. It is about 7 years young and 2 yrs in the ground at this location.
