Park officials remove Robert E. Lee name from list of giant sequoias in Sequoia NP

It’s not just statues coming down but now the name of one of the world’s largest trees, which honors Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.


Officials at Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks last week removed their only known reference to the 255-foot Robert E. Lee Tree by yanking the name from an online list of the planet’s 30 biggest sequoias. The tree at Grant Grove, 50 miles east of Fresno, is the world’s 11th largest.
