Here’s the ‘how to do it’

I extricated seeds from a Giant Sequoia pine cone and planted them. So far, the little seedlings are about 2" tall. They grow to an average height of 50–85 m (165–280 ft) and 6–8 m (18–24 ft) in diameter. Record trees have been measured to be 94.8 m (311 ft) in height and 17 m (57 ft) in diameter.

    First of all, I'm amazed that you have a sequoia tree and second, that you can capture it so creatively.

    This is so pretty...The tree reminds me of emerald green spiders...(The nice kind that don't bite such as the one that bit me on the foot a week ago.) Great job...Your Giant Sequoia tree will probably grow bigger as time goes on.
