    Looks like it's got a marker light perched on it this time around!

    Five baby giant sequoia up for adoption... anyone interested?

    Two of the three I ordered online and planted last fall have all but died... realizing this isn't the best climate/location for these trees. "They" say they'll grow here, but mine aren't.
    Seriously, if anyone wants these, send me a PM with your mailing address and I'll be happy to ship them out to you.

    All that "pruning" could be the best thing that could have happened to that little tree! It's a tough one, that's for sure.:D

    A little off topic, we have a few Metasequoia (Dawn Redwood) around here. They were popular as ornamentals in the 50's and 60's. Still so a little. Every now and then some one would buy a new house in the winter, and call us, saying they had a big dead Pine in their yard that needed removing. We would go out to give an estimate and it would be a Metasequoia. We would tell the homeowner that the tree "Was Not" a Pine, and it "Was Not" dead! It was a type of Redwood and it looses it's needles in the winter. My inlaws neighbor planted 3 of them about 20-25 years ago and they are all 50-60 feet tall and close to 3 feet at the base, Joe.

    I'm giving up on that species growing in my yard. Bad luck, or bad growing conditions, I don't know, but all three that I ordered and planted have died.
    Oh well, plenty more trees on the planet to pick from.:)
