Converse Basin Grove

Notes: Converse Basin Grove is located near Converse Creek and Converse Mountain in the northern section (Hume Lake Ranger District) of Giant Sequoia National Monument. Once considered the second-largest grove of giant redwoods, Converse Basin Grove was logged of nearly all giant redwoods between 1892 and 1918. Experts estimate only 60 to 100 of the original 6,000 old-growth giant redwoods remain.

Converse Basin Grove includes 1 of the 10 largest trees on Earth: Boole, the 2nd largest tree in Giant Sequoia National Monument and the only tree in the grove larger than 40,000 ft3 (1,133 m3).

Converse Basin Grove includes the following giant redwoods:

  • Chicago Stump (General Noble)
  • D25 Stump
  • Muir Snag

Boole is the largest tree in Converse Basin Grove.
