    Chicago Stump

    Once the General Noble Tree, the Chicago Stump has a rich history and is still present today.

    The General Noble Tree was a famous 19th century giant Sequoia located in the Converse Basin. Named for the Civil War general John Willock Noble, the record sized tree (312 ft. height x 99 ft. circumference) was cut down in 1893 for display at the Chicago World's Fair.

    The Chicago Stump ring count puts the tree at 3200 years.
