- With the right amount of light, Sequoias can grow 6 feet per year. When a tree is cut down, multiple trees often grow in it’s place.
- The bark of a Sequoia retards flames, and the seeds it drops on the ground are only activated when fire kills away the groundbrush.
- Sequoia roots only go six to ten feet into the ground with the root systems of adjacent trees being interconnected.
- At the top of the Sequoia, the leaves are different than those at the bottom because it is a strikingly different ecosystem in its’ canopy.
