Here is an updated picture of Frank Thornton’s sequoia sent from Hiroshima, Japan on May 29, 2012. He says, “I just wanted to send you a new pic of my sequoia. It was planted from seed and I think it’s about 5 years old now. For some reason it was in a sort of dormant stage last year and I was a bit worried. However, it’s exploding this year and has grown a foot since the spring”. Thanks Frank for keeping us updated on your sequoia.
This tree is in its second summer and now in the ground. It is a little over two feet tall. Frank Thorton of Hiroshima. Taken June 2009
