Re: TT: Re: I'm back!


There is a redwood growing in a restricted streetlawn situation in Chapel
Hill, NC. Zone 7 USDA. The tree has been there since before I went to
college there - mid 70's. I have never keyed the tree, just believed what
I have been told. Noting you said qiant sequoia is more adaptable, now I
wonder if this could be one of them. I'll try to ask their urban forester
and let you know.

I'm curious about the redwood.  Typically, we expect coast redwood
(<italic>Sequoia sempervirens</italic>) to survive only along the coastal
fog belt from S. Oregon to San Francisco.  So, where did you plant it and
how is it doing?


I am curious to know whether anyone on the list has ever seen a redwood
growing away from the fog belt.  This would be of great interest to me as
a plant physiologist. Dawn redwood (<italic>Metasequoia
glyptostroboides</italic>) does well in a variety of environments, as
does giant sequoia (<italic>Sequoiadendron giganteum</italic>).  I recall
that there were two giant sequoias growing in Rochester NY until the late
1960s.  They had been collected by an expedition sent by Ellwanger and
Barry, the pioneering nurserymen, in the late 1800s, and survived until
struck by lightning in the '60s
