One of Earth's mightiest lifeforms!
Our plastic Sequoia tree will add a bit of foliage to your diorama or school project. The tree is very dark green, although it looks almost black in the photo. We have plenty of animals to go with the landscape you create. Do you make model railroad layouts? Our plastic trees could lend some variety. We have seen more realistic trees for model railroaders, so our trees may be best used in layouts for younger engineers, as they are sturdy enough for play. All materials in this plastic sequoia tree has passed the required testing, as these trees are sold as toys for kids 3 and older. The name "Sequoia" is stamped in small letters on the bottom of the tree's base. Therapists like to use our realistic models for sand trays. Check out our other tree, flower, and plant replicas, toys and gifts.
About Sequoia Trees
In the broadest definition from Wikipedia, "a tree is a plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting leaves or branches". Under this definition, palms, bamboo, and tree ferns are included as "trees". Some definitions attempt to narrow this to what most of us consider trees by naming specific height or use for lumber. However, when it comes right down to it, a 100-foot tree is still basically a plant, like any other bush, flower, or crop plant.
A genus of redwood coniferous trees, Sequoia includes the largest trees in the world. There is only one species of sequoia alive today, the Sequoia sempervirens. Also called California redwood and giant redwood, this species is located in Northern California and Southern Oregon. Many of this species are estimated to be almost 2000 years old, and can have trunks almost 30 feet across. Since the 1850's, nearly 95% of the orginal old-growth sequoia has been cut down by commercial logging.
