Here's a really comprehensive article about them, Dave:

This one says they can get to 70 feet tall. Even with their base badly burned by fire, and the flesh gone around it they can keep on living for many years--amazing and awesome plants!

They're just magnificent! they stand anywhere up to 60 feet tall and have an internal "rib" structure of wood, much like us with our bones on the inside and flesh on the outside. They weigh several tons at this size, and live to be possibly 200 years old! I'm just in awe of every one of them. (I shot up 100's of photos of different ones on this trip!)

Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)
