The Adam Tree is the 20th largest giant sequoia in the world. It is located in Mountain Home Grove, a sequoia grove in Giant Sequoia National Monument in the Sierra Nevada of California.

History

The Adam tree was named around 1884 by Jesse Hoskins, who was also responsible for the room cut out of the Hercules tree, which is also in the Mountain Home Grove. Wendell Flint and Mike Law measured the Adam tree in 1978 and calculated a volume of 35,017 cubic feet (991.6 m3), with a girth of 95 feet (29.0 m). It was considered the largest tree in the grove until 1985, when Flint, with the help of photographer Mike Law, measured and named the nearby Genesis tree and demonstrated that it was larger. Three trees in the grove - the Genesis, Summit Road and Euclid trees - are presently considered to be larger than the Adam tree.
