Sequoiadendron giganteum - Giant Redwood

Giant Redwood

A vigorous and long-living evergreen conifer tree, Sequoiadendron giganteum eventually reaches a huge size, with a heavy trunk and thick reddish brown bark. When young, the Giant Redwood or ‘Wellingtonia’ has a conical habit but as it matures, the branches become more widely spaced and downswept while the lower stem becomes free of branches. In its native area of California and Oregon, the Giant Redwood can reach great heights and wide girths. The famous “General Sherman” tree reached 84m (275ft) with a girth of 25m (82ft) after 3,200 years.
