Atwell Mill Grove

Notes: Atwell Mill Grove, also known as the Skinner Grove of Big Trees, is located near East Fork of Kaweah River in the Mineral King Valley of Sequoia National Park. The grove was named after Atwell Mill, a former sawmill built in 1879, which cut giant redwoods to make flume boards, posts, and shingles and provided lumber for early homes in the area. The property surrounding the mill was sold to A. J. Atwell and, eventually, to D. E. Skinner who donated the land to the Department of the Interior.

Atwell Mill Grove includes the tree with the world's widest branch (Arm) and 2 of the 30 largest trees on Earth (Above Diamond and Diamond). The grove contains 3 trees larger than 30,000 ft3 (850 m3) and 1 tree larger than 35,000 ft3 (991 m3).
