The giant sequoia is the largest tree in the world by volume. It is native to a small area of the western Sierra Nevada mountains of California. This ancient marvel can live for more than 3,000 years and reach more than 300 feet tall. Its large trunk has a cinnamon-red color and is fire resistant. This tree is highly adaptable and can grow in a wide range of climates. The “General Sherman” is the world’s largest tree and has a base of 36 feet in diameter.

Your XL tree is ready to be planted in its final location. Spring and Fall are okay for planting. Remember, you are planting the world's largest tree. These trees need plenty of space. We recommend spacing these trees a minimum of 30' away from another tree. If you plan on using these trees as a windbreak or planting in a row, you can shorten that length to 20' apart. Make sure your tree is away from any surrounding buildings or power lines. Dig a hole larger than your container pot. Your surrounding soil should have good drainage. If needed, you can mix some of the native soil with a well-drained potting mix and place it all around the root ball. During the first few years, we recommend protecting your tree during the winter with a wind block. Giving your tree a few feet of space around it, stake a piece of fabric( burlap or landscape fabric works fine) around your tree. This will protect your tree from the freezing wind and help prevent any damage. The wind block can also protect the young tree from any wildlife as well.

If your area tends to dry out, you may need to water regularly for the first few years until the roots can establish themselves and reach soil that remains moist.
