Specimen Ridge: Large Sequoia Stump View 2
Mary Klass stands next to the large Sequoia stump on Specimen Ridge. Knowlton (1899) describes this specimen as 12 feet in hight when measured from the base of the roots. The circumference is 26.5 feet. When comparing this specimen with living relatives, it is estimated to have been over 200 feet in height when alive (Knowlton, 1899, p. 16).
