Fumitur* Draperies Housewares Hardwares 19 Eo>t CHrvi-PY 3-3277 Redwood quite satisfactory for skyline specimen The redwood tree's (Sequoia sempervierens) best use is as a skyline tree or as a background tree for other plantings. It isn't recommended to plant the redwood as a cover for other plants because its shade is so dense that even shade plants won't grow under it for long. The redwood doesn't grow as rapidly in the arid climate of Southern California as it does in its native habitat farther north. No one knows how tall it will grow here or how long it will live. The oldest ones in he southland would be little more than a century old, and as redwoods go, this would be little more than a sapling. But it does well for us and is certainly worth growing, if you have the room. Rarely can a single lot stand more than one or two redwood U-ees. Where there are several acres such as in a rural area or in parks, groves of redwood trees are a beautiful attraction.
