Giant Sequoia Seedling Planting


  • Trail of 100 Giants Giant Sequoia National Monument (map)

How many people have had the peak experience of planting one year-old Giant Sequoia seedlings BACK into the mother grove from which the seeds were collected? Outside of the mostly inappropriate locations one finds Giant sequoias in urban landscape design, there are only a handful of those who plant like we do at WildPlaces - through our “Nature Eye”.

“Nature Eye” can be described as the lens through which everyday decisions are made, and based on how and how much the outcomes benefit Nature first, leaving economic, social, even artistic goals secondary. Ouch!

TE GUSTARIA SER PARTE DEL UNO PORCIENTO QUIEN PLANTA ESTOS ARBOLES ESTA ESENCIAL MENTE PLANTANDO 3,00 ANOS EN EL FUTURO? QUIEN NO LO HARIA?

Do you want to be part of the “one percent” who plant these trees and essentially plan 3,000 years into the future? Who wouldn’t?

Here’s your chance! Join WildPlaces on planting weekends atr the iconic Trail of 100 Giants for a winter, weekend campout wherein the “100 Giants” that the Otis College Community has germinated and grown out to become 100 beautiful and perfect Giant Sequoia seedlings. Raised from seeds (cones) collected from the Giant Sequoia National Monument one year ago, these trees are now handed over to WildPlaces for planting, care, and monitoring! at the Trail of 100 Giants.

Space is very limited; however as more funds and resources are raised, WildPlaces will do its best to accompodate everyone in this critical, fun, and once-in-a life time activity.
