The sequoia (Sequoia sempervirens) is native to the southern Pacific coast of North America. First described in 1847, this evergreen tree belongs to the sequoia subfamily (Sequoioideae) along with the mountain redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum) from the Rocky Mountains and the ancient sequoia (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) native to China. The tallest known living tree in the world, measuring almost 116 metres, is the "Hyperion" coast redwood in Redwood National Park in northwestern California.
