There are many other more colorful ways to convey the true size of General Sherman, like the National Park Service sign that says an equivalent volume of water would supply the average household for three and a half years. General Sherman would sequester two pounds of carbon dioxide, grow four pounds of wood, six cones, and 1,200 seeds, amaze 3,800 tourists, and pose for thousands of pictures. General Sherman has experienced over 803,000 sunrises and sunsets, 28,700 full moons, 880 total lunar eclipses, six total solar eclipses, and survived about 90 fires and dozens of earthquakes.
