Note the size of the redwood after only 3 years from just 6 inches tall! Now they're over nine feet. Thank you Jim Williams
View of Jim Willams tree in Modesto from afar. We have hundreds of Giant Sequoias in our city. They do quite well here until they suffer from lack of water once they reach about 50 feet or so. I've seen a few dead ones but most people take care of them. Mine are averaging about 3 to 4 feet of upward and outward growth per year. I top-dress around my trees with homemade compost and fertilize moderately. They get watered every other day on average.
