Giant Sequoia Pinecone

Detailed Description

A single giant sequoia pinecone rests in the bark of its parent. A large sequoia tree can have several thousand pinecones at a time. Although giant sequoia trees are among the largest trees in the world, their pinecones are comparatively small, usually only 2 inches or so.
