Sequoia genus (Redwood). The redwood is extremely long lived and it is one of the world's tallest tree. As a conifer it is distinguished from other trees and shrubs by producing seeds which are exposed on the scales of fruits. As in most conifers, there are woody fruits called cones and needle-like leaves. It has thick soft bark, whorled branches when young and yew-like foliage.

It will survive in a wide range of climates, They prefer full sun or partial-shade with deep, well-drained soil. If the conifer produces more than one leader, to maintain the general conical habit, remove all but one leader. To restrict the height of the plant, the leader can be cut back.
You can propagate from seed sown in autumn or spring (but forms selected for leaf colour do not come true). Evergreen current growth cuttings can be taken from autumn to spring. Deciduous softwood cuttings in summer.
Honey fungus may be a problem; young plants are more susceptible.
