Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks
By Meg Leonard
  

1     Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are in California. The two parks share a border. The parks are found in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Very different things are protected by each park.
 
2     Giant sequoia trees live here. They are some of the largest living single organisms in the world. The largest sequoia is named General Sherman. It is 275 feet tall. The tree is 109 feet around at the base. It has enough wood to build 120 houses! The tree weighs about as much as fifteen adult blue whales. The sequoias need fire to reproduce. Fire clears the ground of dead twigs and plants. It fertilizes the soil. This leaves the best soil for the sequoias to grow in. Sequoia cones open in fires. The seeds fall onto the rich soil.
