Guerrilla Tree Planting Ep.4 Giant Redwood
In Episode 4 I focus on my favourite species the Giant Redwood (Sequoiadendron Giganteum).
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
Hi there! I am a novice guerrilla tree planter and will record and share my journey, lessons, failures and successes with you over the coming years. Any advice or questions are welcome.
I do not own the land but have looked for ‘spaces in between’ and opportunities, but remember: Right tree right place. Only plant trees where they will have space to prosper and avoid planting near access tracks, roads, power lines, railways, drains, and buildings: Right tree right place.
The species I am attempting to propagate and plant thus far are: birch, oak, beech, cherry, ash, hazel, apple, acer platanoides, lime, london plane, horse chestnut, sweet chestnut and giant redwood. I hope you find this useful and it encourages others to do the same : )
