Are redwood trees the most resilient species, or are they just the largest?

    Sequoia Sempervirens is the coastal redwood- the tallest tree; Sequoiadendron giganteum is the an inland species- the most voluminous tree. Both species extend back 2-3 thousand years (older trees most likely have been logged) and can withstand earthquakes, floods and fires, but some would argue the Bristlecone pine, Pinus longaeva, which lives in a more extreme, desert climate for nearly 5,000 years is more resilient.
