I’m a Texan, and as you know, everything is bigger in Texas…except the trees! I have been to this tree many times and every time I am more amazed than the time before. It is a sight to behold. The Big Tree is 304′ tall, 21.6′ in diameter, and estimated to be 1500 years old. It’s still here by the grace of God and I’m certain a lot of those wonderful tree huggers! My parents went with us on this trip and I’m so very happy they got to see the fabulous Big Tree.
