  Sequoia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sequoia is a genus in the cypress family Cupressaceae, containing the single living species Sequoia sempervirens.
The name Sequoia is also used as a general term for the subfamily Sequoioideae in which this genus is classified together with Sequoiadendron (Giant Sequoia) and Metasequoia (Dawn Redwood).
Among current living trees only 15 Giant Sequoias are larger than this; these are shorter, but have thicker trunks, giving the largest Giant Sequoia, General Sherman, a volume of 1,487 cubic metres (52,510 cubic feet).

 2006 Toyota - Ratings & Reviews - Dan Jedlicka - MSN Autos
Sequoia prices range from $30,815 for the entry SR5 rear-drive model, which is fairly well equipped, to $42,275 for the top-line LTD 4-wheel-drive version.
The 8-passenger Sequoia was expressly designed for the U.S. market, where such things as its standard third-row seating are becoming expected items in big sport utes.
However, the Sequoia does pretty well during off-road driving because ground clearance is high and the effective 4-wheel-drive system has a low range.

 Giant sequoia at opensource encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Giant Sequoia or Giant Redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum) is one of a number of species of gymnosperm tree known as redwoods, classified in the Family Cupressaceae (in a part of this family formerly segregated as Taxodiaceae).
Sequoia bark is fibrous, furrowed, and may be 60cm (2 ft) thick at the base of the columnar trunk and provides significant fire protection for the trees.
The elevation of the Giant Sequoia groves generally ranges from 1,400-2,000m (4,600-6,600 ft) in the north, and 1,700-2,150 m (5,600-7,000 ft) to the south.

 California Guide - Sequoia National Park
Sequoia is half of a combined unit of two National Parks, administered together - the other is Kings Canyon to the north.
Sequoia Park has one spectacular valley, Kern Canyon, that runs north-south near the eastern border, and there are some groves of giant sequoia in Kings Canyon Park, but the name of each park accurately reflects their most important features.
The giant sequoias are abundant but only in small areas, so most of the journey through the park along CA 198 passes just rather featureless fir, pine and cedar trees.
