Large Sequoia



Beautiful example of Washington grown Sequoia. Although its not native to WA, there is an abundance of Sequoia and Redwood in our area. Most of these local giants are actually only 40 to 50 years old. For whatever reason, sometime around the 1970s, folks around here thought it was a good idea to plant these as “decorative” yard trees.. Well, these trees are not satisfied being decorations and did what they do, which is become gigantic… and fast. Having an abundance of moisture and no competition for sunlight these trees grow faster than the Incredible Hulk. While becoming gigantic in peoples yards, the root systems began lifting houses, sidewalks and nearby roads… So, sadly, the majority of the ill advised plantings are now being removed.

The wood is relatively soft and easy to carve, cut and sand… It takes finish nicely and is structurally stable.. Great for outdoor tables and a wide range of decorative projects.. For interior use, I recommend a hard finish as it is easily dented when finished with just oil. The contrast between heart and sapwood makes for a stunning piece no matter the use.
