The Kennedy Grove contains the thirteenth largest tree in the world, the Ishi Giant. This tree was only discovered in the 1990s, proving that there may still be some supergiants out there to be discovered.
Some of the trees found in the grove that are worthy of special note are:
- Ishi Giant — this huge tree has very few visitors; it is very tricky to find because it is not very well known. The tree looks very old and has burn scars all round the base. This tree is the thirteenth largest in existence and contains 38,156 cubic feet (1,080.5 m3) of wood.
- Evans Tree — this tree is in the adjacent Evans Grove, which is very close to the Kennedy Grove, and sometimes they are referred to together as the Evans Grove. The tree was measured in 1981, and had a volume of 30,232 cubic feet (856.1 m3).
