Sequoia sempervirens - Coast Redwood

Coast Redwood

One of the best known redwoods from the West coast of USA, Sequoia sempervirens grows to a very large and stately coniferous tree. The Coast Redwood can eventually reach heights of over 300ft making it suitable for large gardens and parks. It grows well in Ireland as a specimen tree where its size and its thick, reddish, spongy bark can be shown off to advantage. Despite its name it does need some protection from coastal exposure. It is known to be among the tallest living tree species and mentioned in the Guinness book of records. There are many fine examples found in parks and Arboretums throughout Ireland. Hailed as a tree to plant for posterity and your grandchildren!
