The Wawona Tree stood in Mariposa Grove, Yosemite National
Park. It had a height of 227 feet and was 90 ft in
circumference. A tunnel was cut through the tree in 1881. The
Wawona Tree fell in 1969 under an estimated two- ton load of
snow on its crown. The giant sequoia is estimated to have been
2,300 years old.
