    Sequoia sempervirens - Strong Growth

     Since completing a major thinning and shaping on this old Sequoia in September, the growth rate has been extraordinary.  I believe this is due to allowing it to grow un-pruned since last Springs re-potting where 60% of the root mass was removed.

    As the bright green foliage begins to darken to a deeper green colour (late summer - early Autumn) the tree will be lightly pruned and refined to show more of the trunk and lower branches;  for much the same reason as the needle plucking and bud selection on Japanese Black pine.
