There is one giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum)
in a private garden in Châlus
This could be the French Champion Giant Sequoia: 12m60 at 1m50 to be confirmed. Challengers are mainly in Alsace, Pyrénées and West coast including Normandy.
Girth growth rate
The girth was measured more than once:
|Year||Girth@1.3 m||Measurement||Girth growth rate|
|2010||12.60 m||Marc Meyer||-|
|2011||13.10 m||moel||50 cm/year|
The growth rate shown in the table shows the yearly average increase in girth since the last measurement. This value only gives an indication of the growth rate, since every measurement could be done at slightly different heights and during different periods of the year.
Its height is not known.
The age of the tree was estimated by these persons:
