Our Sequoia Tree
This huge Sequoia tree is a wonderful feature within the private grounds of Château de Cervolet, towering high over the canopy of our many other tree’s.
The sequoia is a redwood tree and it is one of the largest tree species in the world.
The sequoia tree is listed as an endangered species by the IUCN, with fewer than 80,000 trees remaining.
According to Wikipedia, the Sequoia specimens are the most massive individual trees in the world. They grow to an average height of 50–85 m (164–279 ft) with trunk diameters ranging from 6–8 m (20–26 ft).
When we get a tape measure that’s large enough we will let you know the height and trunk diameter of our sequoia tree.
Until then, please trust us that it is a beautiful specimen and is wonderful to sketch, paint, draw or photograph. If that sounds your thing, all you have to do is book your stay.
