Converse Basin is a sequoia grove located in Sequoia National Forest in the Sierra Nevada in eastern California, in the edge of the Kings Canyon, 5 miles (8 km) far frome Grant Grove at Kings Canyon National Park. It includes the Boole tree, the sixth-largest tree in the world. Converse Basin used to be a large grove, but was logged of most of its giant sequoias between 1892 and 1918. Now only perhaps 60 large specimens survive out of thousands. This grove is the largest contiguous grove in the world and contains Boole Tree, the largest sequoia on National Forest System land. This grove offers unique opportunities to study how rapidly the young sequoias grow and to create timelines from tree rings on the stumps. It is fairly easy to get to by car, but the main access is a dirt road. It is best to visit in the summer when the road is dry, or in the winter by crosscountry skis or snowmobile. The grove is about 3,700 acres (15 km2) with sequoias concentrated in the basin formed by Converse Creek.
