Notes: Screaming Titans is a large, multi-stem coast redwood: 2 two fused trees with a combined width of 25.6 ft (7.8 m). Cal Poly Humboldt forestry professor Stephen C. Sillett named the tree Screaming Titans because naturalist Michael W. Taylor screamed when he first spotted it in the Grove of Titans on May 11, 1998.
Sillett photographed the crown of Screaming Titans from El Viejo del Norte. Screaming Titans is featured in the BBC Radio 4 Nature program James and the Giant Redwoods.
