Will a giant sequoia tree grow in San Francisco?



  1. 0 Votes

    Giant sequoias really like to grow on the sides of mountains, the lowest elevation they’re found at is about 4,600 ft.  Since San Francisco’s highest elevation is only 52 ft, it doesn’t seem like a giant sequoia would really be happy there.  

    The closest giant sequoia grove to San Francisco is about a 4 hour drive from there. It might be possible to grow a giant sequoia in a park in San Francisco if the soils were right and if it was carefully attended, but they prefer dry summers so the bay area might be too wet for them to grow well. 

    There is a place that sells sequoias that says that they can be grown in all climate zones, they just need a little extra care!
