This weekend we went up to visit our friends up in Wilsonia and took the opportunity to wander a bit in the Sequoia Creek Grove area. Its a very pretty grove and with Sequoias and the small creek which has a couple lovely and picturesque waterfalls it makes the hikes very rewarding in scenery. I have read there is a large one in the grove named the king tree but dont know where it is or if it still exists.
I measured the largest tree that i found in the area. It seemed to me to be decently large specimen, located one draw to the south of viola falls and very near it. However it didn't seem big enough to be a record breaker. It turned out to be approx 18,500-cu.ft. of volume. Not a Champion, but with an impressive base. Here are the measurements i came up with on the tree:
