Giant Sequoia
(Sequoia gigantea)

The Giant Sequoia is the largest tree and the oldest living thing in the world. Giant Sequoia trees grow on average 165 to 300 feet tall with a diameter of 20-35 feet. The oldest known tree is over 3,500 years old based on ring counts.

Other Names: Sierra Redwood, Giant Redwood

Growth Rate: Fast

Soil Type: Grows best in deep, well-drained sandy loams. The natural environment of the Giant Sequoia is restricted to a limited area of the Western Sierra Nevada in California.

Zones: 6 to 8

Germination Range: 20-40%

Stratification Requirement: Soak in hydrogen peroxide for 2 hours or soak in running water for 1-2 days then 21-30 days cold moist stratification.

Indoor Planting: If your seeds require stratification or scarification – do the recommended pretreatment before planting indoors. Planting Instructions: Fill a container with seed starting mix to about ½ inch from the top. Place your seeds 1 inch to 1 ½ inches below the soil surface. Gently water your seeds to keep moist, not soaking wet. Heat & humidity is critical for germination. Germination may occur in 1 week or as long as 3 months (depending on the species). Place the seed container on a heat mat under growing light(s). Keep your growing lights on 14 hours per day. Keep your heat mat on 24 hours per day. Once your seeds germinate, move each seed into its own container under the growing lights and on the heat mat. Keep your seedlings indoors for 2-3 months before transplanting outdoors in the spring (May to June).

Outdoor Planting: If your seeds do not require stratification: the best time to plant tree and shrub seeds outdoors is after the last frost in your area (spring). In the Northern states – the best time to plant seeds outdoors is from May to June. If your seeds require pretreatment: you should plant your seeds outdoors before the ground freezes in your area (late September to early November). Your seeds will naturally stratify during the cold winter. Germination usually occurs in May or during the spring season.
