(es) Redwood en Guatemala
With a seed source from Muir Woods, it will be Cupressus macrocarpa, which is commonly cultivated and naturalised in that area, and not C. lusitanica, which is rarely grown there. For identification, note the scale leaves in opposite pairs; Sequoia sempervirens has flat needle leaves 2-3 cm long, completely different to your tree. Compare here.
Hello Tim and Conifers,
The story of both trees can be traced back to their seeds. The seeds that sprouted the small one were bought at Sequoia National Park and the seeds for the large one (theoretically a Redwood) were obtained at Muir Woods near San Francisco.
The size of the small one has increased to 43 cm, I'll upload the pictures as soon as I can.
I'm curious, since the seeds were supposed to correspond to those trees, what characteristics make you guys think that they are a different type of trees.
I also have a sequoia that was bought as a sapling (they come in a sort of canister) and as far as I could tell they were the same. I'll try to upload pictures of that one for comparison.
I ask these questions to learn, as I'd like to know what characteristics Sequoia and Redwood saplings have, for future reference.
Thanks A Lot
Does anybody know this exactly is? It is not a giant sequoia.
