ha that little tree all the trees in the USA arent as big as the ones here in california's Sherman tree

The world largest tree
The Sherman tree is as tall as a 27 story buliding, a thirteen story building would barely touch its first huge branch
If the trunk of the General Sherman tree were laid horizontally on a football field and the roots were on one goal line, the top of the tree would be 91 yards away on the opposite 9 yard line
The maximum basel diameter of the Sherman tree equals 36 feet; if the tree were placed in the middle of a California three-lane freeway, it would completely block block all three 12 feet-wide lanes
The 12,000 square foot surface area of the General Sherman’s trunk equals one quarter of the surface area of a regulation American football field
The annual growth rate of the trunk of the General Sherman tree is 40 cubic feet is equal to the trunk of an average tree one foot in basel diameter and 50 feet tall
The total volume of the trunk of the General Sherman tree - 52,500 cubic feet - is equal to the lumberman’s measure of 630,000 board feet. Since a board foot is 12 inches of 1x12 lumber, the trunk of the General Sherman tree theoretically could be cut into 119.3 miles of 1x12 planking. Laid end - to - end this would strech from the foot of the General Sherman tree to south of Bakersfield, or in a straight line west to the Pacific Ocean.
A branch that fell in February, in 1978, had a diameter over six feet and a length of at least 140 feet. This one branch, by itself, would have been one of the largest trees anywhere in the United States east of the Cascade and Sierra Nevada ranges.

The saw---90hp 500cc water cooled HUSQVARNA motorcycle engine.
running a 36" custom made guide bar and special hand made 1/2 pitch square
ground chain. The saw runs a 16 tooth drive sprocket that is also custom built.
Everything about this saw is custom made for speed. Gary and his partner
Steve Ingalls designed and built THE IRON HOURSE as it's called.
However, the compitition has a lot of different names they call it.
*@##@$%% and so on. None of them were very nice.
But sticks and stones------
If you counted all the time involved in the design and CAD time on the
computer, plus building special parts the cost would be in excess of
$35,000.00. The saw has never been beaten at a logging show. Gary holds the
worlds speed cutting record through a 27" log of 2.34sec set at Morton,
Washington's Grand finals.
