Trees are incredible. There is such a staggering variety, and endless shapes, colors, functions, habitats, uses...We wanted to stop and take a moment to appreciate the beauty, adaptability, and oddity of trees. There's no better tree to start off with than General Sherman, the famed Giant Sequoia in the Sequoia National Park, that is 275 feet tall, the largest non-clonal living tree on the face of the earth. Try hugging that!
