We have about 20 Sequoia Redwood Trees growing currently
in Menlo Park, CA. Ages range from 5-15 years, yet only one of the
youngest has started growing cones... as many as 50 on a branch. What
is so special about this? This tree is located in the middle of the
grove and it's approximately 20 feet tall, the larger ones are 80+
Interesting example of variability.
