Giant Sequoia Tree Seedling 10 Months Old (Sequoiadendron giganteum)

Just thought I would post a quick update and post a photo of one of the two Sequoia trees that survived after planting several last year.

This one is a Giant Sequoia Tree (Sequoiadendron giganteum).

At what point does a seedling officially become a tree?  This article titled “The Life Span of a Sequoia” goes into more detail on the Sequoia life cycle.  Perhaps right now it is technically a sapling?  Or just a “young tree”.

This tree would likely be taller if I would have transplanted it sooner.  But that’s ok, just happy I have two that are alive!
