This giant sequoia tree was planted in about 1890 (after the house was built in 1885). It's on the grounds of the Captain George Flavel House, a Victorian mansion built by an early day ship captain & business man in Astoria, Oregon. The story of the house is well documented; it is owned by the Clatsop County Historical Society & open to the public. http://www.cumtux.org/default.asp?pageid=35. Thanks to William Barnett for sending us these wonderful photos.
This giant sequoia tree towers over the Captain George Flavel House in Astoria, Oregon. According to records, this tree is almost 130 years old now. Thanks to William Barnett for sending us this photo.
Thanks William Barnett for sending this historical photo of the Flavel House. He said, "The photo I'm sending says the house was painted white in 1895, so this photo is after that, but what looks like the sequoia is a pretty well-established tree by then (there are 3 trees in the photo, all about the same size, in the general area of the present day sequoia). If the girl with the parasol standing nearby is 5ft tall, the tree must be at least 15 ft tall. There are also some notes I've seen that specify that the gardener (Louis Schulz) actually started planting the landscaping before the house was built".

Behind the Home Grown Gardens Nursery are dozens of mature beautiful giant sequoias which gives one a chance to see the tree growing in rows. The trees are about 20 feet apart. The nursery is located south of Corvallis on the SE 3rd Street. Almost every property or park in Oregon has giant sequoia trees growing well.
This is another view of the rows of giant sequoias behind the Home Grown Gardens nursery south of Corvallis.

A close up of the urban street trees taken by James in Portland. Trees appear very healthy. The street is a bit stressed with root push up.
From flickr photographer graygoosie who spotted this sculpture along with a beautiful giant sequoia in the yard of friends in Portland. The tree was crowding the Sequoia so she became art. Sculpted with a chainsaw, it's breathtaking, traffic stopping and raises emotion just by being near her.
