Wildfires Engulfing California burns nearly 40K acres; threatens World’s Largest Trees

On Sunday, two massive wildfires, the Windy and KNP Complex fires, spread to 18,075 acres (73.1 square kilometres) and 21,777 acres (88.1 square kilometres) respectively around the Sequoia National Forest and Sequoia National Park in the US state of California (September 19).

The KNP Complex reached the Four Guardsmen in the Giant Forest, according to a statement released by the Sequoia National Park on Saturday (September 18). According to the Xinhua news agency, the Giant Forest is home to over 2,000 giant sequoias, including the General Sherman Tree, which is the world’s largest tree by volume.

The Four Guardsmen is a colonnade of four massive sequoias near the forest’s south gate. “Firefighters’ fuel removal efforts, combined with structure wrap applied by crews to the base of the iconic sequoia trees, successfully protected these national treasures,” according to the statement.
