What Plant AM I?

My nick name is Big Tree.
I am part three species of coniferous classified in the family of plants called Cupressaceae.

My family has three unique and well-adapted species.

My common name of me only naturally occurs in groves on the western slope of a Mt. range.

I am the largest living thing by volume.

My Lower branches die fairly readily from shading, but trees less than 100 years old retain most of their dead branches. My tree trunks in groves are generally free of branches to a height of 66–164 ft.

Water from my roots can be pushed up only a few meters by osmotic pressure but can reach extreme heights by using a system of branching capillarity (capillary action) in the tree's xylem (the water tubules) and sub-pressure from evaporating water at the leaves.

I supplement water from the soil with fog, taken up through air roots, at heights to where the root water cannot be pulled.

I am fire resistant, and their cones will normally open immediately after a fire

My wood is been used to make wine barrels.
