Anyone Want a Baby Sequoia?
The baby sequoia, however, did not forget; it did what it was designed to do -- it grew. It pushed its roots through the drain hole in the bottom of the pot and kept right on growing deep into the earth below. Now over 10 feet tall (they can grow up to 300 feet!), the tree is trapped between the patio and the enormous pine tree in the background of the photo.
The sequoia will have to come out, or we'll have to build the house around it! We hope we can get it out without destroying it. We're not even sure where we'll put it if we can successfully dig it up.
Anybody out there with a shovel, a big pot, a truck, creativity and persistence who would like a sequoia for your yard? Let us know and the tree is yours!
