The Giant Sequoias of California
NPS Logo


IT IS SINCERELY HOPED that this brief account of the giant sequoia will be of assistance to those who contemplate a visit to the groves, to those whose pilgrimage has become a reality, and to those who have gained acquaintance with these forest monarchs. No bulletin of this limited scope could possibly do full justice to the unique story of these most unusual trees, and all who are interested are urged to consult the more pretentious publications on this interesting subject.

The wonder of these trees, their size, majesty, and mystery deepen with time and study. Personal acquaintance with the giant Sequoias in their cathedral groves on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada cannot but produce cherished memories of a worth-while experience.
