Sequoiadendron giganteum, commonly known as the giant sequoia, is a massive coniferous tree species that is endemic to the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. It is one of the largest trees in the world, growing up to a height of 50-85 meters (165-279 feet) and a diameter of 6-8 meters (20-26 feet) at the base. The tree has a distinctive massive trunk that can measure up to 30 meters (98 feet) in circumference, and reddish-brown bark that is soft and fibrous. The leaves of the giant sequoia are needle-like, about 3-6 mm long, and arranged spirally on the branches. The cones are also massive, measuring up to 20-50 cm (8-20 inches) in length, and take about 20 months to mature. When mature, the cones disintegrate, releasing the small seeds that are dispersed by the wind. Giant sequoias are long-lived trees, with some individuals living up to 3,000 years. They have a unique ability to regenerate after fires, with their thick bark protecting the tree from damage. The tree has an important ecological role in the Sierra Nevada ecosystem, providing habitat for a wide range of wildlife, including birds, squirrels, and bears.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
