Giant Redwood Tree Jardin Du Luxembourg

The Sequoiadendron Giganteum, is the scientific name for the Giant Sequoia, also known as a Giant Redwood, and it is actually a species of coniferous tree, as you can no doubt tell from this photo that we took, while we were within the Luxembourg Gardens.

Jardin Du Luxembourg Tourist Info Plaque For Giant Redwood

Yet this next photo shows the tourist information plaque located on the ground next to this tree, and native to California, it was not discovered in the Sierra Nevada until 1833, and was first introduced in Europe in 1860.

You will find that the Sequoiadendron Giganteum can reach a height of around 100 metres in California, which is why it is classed as a giant in the world of vegetation, however, in France the oldest recorded Giant Sequoia trees only exceed around 40 metres.

Now this is one of the historical trees within the Luxembourg Gardens, yet the Giant Redwood can actually reach beyond 2000 years of age due to its robustness, being able to tolerate varying temperatures and extreme cold, also withstanding fire, so as you can no doubt imagine, this is one bit of the botanical heritage that the French Senate, who oversee the Jardin du Luxembourg, wish to maintain in the garden for future generations to enjoy.
