Redwood Forest If there is one tree that most non-Californians identify with this state, it is certainly the coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) (fig. 77).These giant trees, famous for their size and longevity, form dark, primordial groves in moist valleys and canyons, and large ferns and a lush understory suggest a different, earlier time.

Giant sequoia is the world’s largest tree in terms of volume (13).   This is a quaint book about 7x7inches, with 38pages of colour images. Mostly of forest ground level. Not many photos of entire trees. It doesn't have much text. It's good basic information but I believe it contains some deceit that there are remains in the world of ancestors which existed million years ago. It says there were 30 kinds of Reviews: 1.

Giant sequoia, (Sequoiadendron giganteum), also called Sierra redwood, coniferous evergreen tree of the cypress family (Cupressaceae), the largest of all trees in bulk and the most massive living things by giant sequoia is the only species of the genus Sequoiadendron and is distinct from the coast redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens), which are the tallest living trees.

Ecological relationships-including habitat and life historyof giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum [Lindl.] Buchholz) in natural stands are summarized. Such silvical information provides an important foundation for sound management of the species.

GENERAL BOTANICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Giant sequoias grow to an average height of to feet ( m) and 15 to 20 feet ( m) d.b.h. Record trees have been reported to be feet (95 m) in height and 35 feet (11 m) d.b.h. The leaves are awl-shaped, sessile, and persistent.

Seed cones are 2 to 3 inches ( cm) long, serotinous, persistent, and may remain green up to 20 years. Sequoia books is a new, dynamic & innovative publisher specialising in Psychology, Sports & Physical Activity.

Sequoiadendron giganteum (giant sequoia; also known as giant redwood, Sierra redwood, Sierran redwood, Wellingtonia or simply big tree—a nickname also used by John Muir) is the sole living species in the genus Sequoiadendron, and one of three species of coniferous trees known as redwoods, classified in the family Cupressaceae in the subfamily Sequoioideae, together with Sequoia.

The Difference Between Sequoia Sempervirens & Sequoia Giganteum. The U.S. West Coast is the home to two related species of evergreen trees.

The giant sequoia however is considered good for “all zones” and to low temperatures of –30F and perhaps colder. The coast redwoods are the tallest trees on earth (to feet) and the giant sequoias are the most massive (to 40 feet in trunk diameter).

Other attempts to develop a hybrid between coast redwood and giant sequoia by normal controlled-pollination crosses have failed (28). Cell fusion in culture may be used to create interspecific hybrids with giant sequoia or other species (28).
