^An 1856 news article lists the height of the tree without its broken off top as 150 feet (46 m). In 1900, the United States Forest Service wrote it was 280 feet (85 m) tall.
^"It's unclear exactly how old the tree was, but the Los Angeles Times reports that the trees in the state park are estimated to be more than 1,000 years old. Sequoias can live for more than 3,000 years. The iconic tree was one of just a few tunneled-through sequoias in California. The most famous was the Wawona Tree, in Yosemite National Park; it fell during a winter storm in 1969 at an estimated age of 2,100 years. The other remaining sequoia tunnels are dead or consist of logs on their side, the Forest Service says."
