Notes: Newton B. Drury, also known as Drury Tree and Drury Giant, is the 11th largest single-stem coast redwood, the 5th largest tree in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, and the largest tree in Newton Bishop Drury and Aubrey Drury Memorial Grove. Naturalist Michael W. Taylor named the tree to honor Newton B. Drury, former director of the National Park Service and Save the Redwoods League, for whom the surrounding grove was dedicated in 1979.
The trunk of Newton B. Drury is extremely large: 18 ft (5.5 m) wide 20 ft (6 m) above ground and still 16 ft (4.9 m) wide 100 ft (30 m) above ground. Numerous bark indentions seen on the uphill/north side of the tree represent scars from old logging undercuts.
