    Help with identifying my tree

    I was given seeds approximately 2 years ago and these 6 trees/plants sprouted. The person that gave me the seeds believed they were giant sequoias. After a little research I'm not sure that this is the case. I'm new to bonsai and need help from some more experienced person.
