sequoidendron giganteum Wellingtonia,giant redwood,Sierra redwood. The 'big tree' of california attains a very large size.The deeply furrowed,reddish brown outer bark is similar to that of sequoia sempervirens in texture, but spongier.As a young tree it has a densely branched,conical habit.On older trees the branches are more widely spaced and conspicuously downswept.Sometimes the lower park of the trunk is clear of branches,for several metres,revealing the ornamental bark.Leaves awl-shaped,6-12mm long,bright green,spirally arranged,persisting for up to 4 years.Cones ovoid,5-7.5cm long,green at first,maturing to reddish brown the second year.
