Even though there are many other trees that are taller and wider at their base, they are no match to the infamous General Sherman tree. This tree outranks anything living on this planet by its sheer volume (excluding branches) and is considered to be the largest living organism on this planet. The estimated age of this tree is around 2,300-2,700 years old. It has survived multiple fires, climate change and – thankfully – the modern-day man.
