And when our family is no more, all of his unborn brothers dead, Every niece and nephew scattered, the house torn down, His mother's beauty ashes in the air, I want you to stand among strangers, all young and emphemeral to you, Silently keeping the secret of your birth.

The tree is now about 4 feet tall! He knows that the tree will outlive him, which is what every father wants for his son. After a few weeks, the plants will start to grow branches. Periodic wildfires help to produce all of these conditions and are therefore very beneficial to the reproduction of sequoia trees.

As another posting mentioned, I am seeing black in some spots on the trunk and some of the needles are turning brown faster and larger quantities than normal. Seeds that germinated here Belgium around Christmas, have not grown noticeably until spring. This drying out has been slow in the course of few weeks even , so I'm wondering if there is still chance for it to return to normal. What advice can you give me on planting it outside? My question is do you think these brown needles could be the beginning of a fungal infection? A period of 4 weeks is a good minimum. The roots are under about 8 inches of mulch and we do get a fair amount of snow. They have grown to about 8 feet.

Hold the redwood tree by its trunk with one hand; with the other hand strike the bottom of the container with a stout piece of wood, a hammer or even a trowel.
