12 Giant Sequoia Trees – May 2015
Since this is a family business we started planting Giant Sequoia trees for our grandchildren. Which we now have 5 in their names. We planted the first one in August of 2000 then April 2004, June 2006, October 2008, and February 2012. We recently planted 12 more Giant Sequoia Trees on our property, but since we ran out of grandchildren we’ll have to hope for great grandchildren. We picked these trees for several reasons. First they are an evergreen tree so they won’t shed their leaves during the winter months, this will keep them beautiful year around. They are generally well able to protect themselves against their natural threats, allowing them to survive for thousands of years. Their bark is thick and rich in tannin, which protect them against fire and insect damage. We have had great success with these trees, we now have over 17 Giant Sequoia trees planted on our property and some are more than 14 years old now.
