Product Description

Giant sequoia is the one non-native species in our plant sale: It occurs naturally in a narrow belt along the west slope of the central Sierra Nevada mountains and can grow to be the most massive trees by wood volume in the world, such as the General Sherman tree in Sequoia National Park. Giant sequoias have been grown in Washington for decades. The species requires sunlight and moist but well-drained soils in order to thrive.  They are used by a variety of bird and small mammal species for food and shelter.
