Indeed, they are the largest living organism by mass on our planet. Apparently, some of the trees are as old as 3,000 years, and less than 60,000 mature sequoia remain standing. We were lucky to be the only two people in the grove on this particular afternoon (aside from the mosquitoes :) Here is more information on the grove if you would like to read up: http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stel prdb5344073.pdf
