This Sequoia is growing in my neighborhood in West Seattle. There is a small plaque at the base - can't remember exactly what it says but something along the lines of it being a 'heritage tree' in Seattle. It's about 90-100 yrs old, planted around 1910 I think. The city made a sidewalk revision around it to accommodate its girth. I love how it dwarfs the house behind it. Thanks to Damon Kiley for sending us this picture.
This picture was sent to us by Joe Dube. He grew this tree from seed in a pot in Irvine, CA in 1988. Sometime before 1993, his brother Tom carried it in a bag on the plane to Kirkland, WA and planted it in his backyard. It has done well, on the edge of a small wooded hillside and today might be 50 feet high. The tree is the perfectly shaped one, center right. Thanks Joe for sending us this picture.
Eric sent this image in of the tree located on his parents property in Fife. It is slated to be removed by the developers in the area for road work.
