Would have been a monster this summer with all the rain-closing in on 8"
for June now with anywhere from 2-5" forecast over the next 3 days.

Why not plant a dawn redwood instead?

Jim- I forget, was yours one of the 'blue' type? I've heard in several conversations that the 'blue' form of Sequoia is hardier... Or are you giving up on them?

Too bad that it's not coming back. I lost a lot of good plants this year too, the extended cold was just too much.

Thats true :D

Paul

I don't think it was a blue form...no plans to try again as I don't
know how long I will be at this address...part (or all of the prob)
was the mulch was not piled around the trunk as it should have been..
this may have at least left enough of the main trunk and roots alive
to have a chance...who knows...

Rats.

I had a dawn redwood once. Nice, but of course deciduous.

You can grow vines up the corpse of your Sequoia if you want to salvage something from your effort.
