Good evening to you in N. California to Canada, and to the others too :)

I stratified, then sowed and finally have a couple of Sequoia sempervirens:

March 2nd, 2013:



May 3rd, 2016:


I repotted them today: I kept about half or less from the volume in the "half-pint pots".

The one behind the glass (of organic apple-juice and home-made lemonade) has a twisted base.
Now that it's just been repotted in a much better soil mix to boost it, I could wire it to straighten its port: the few I can see around here are tall, strong, poweful straight trees that were planted in the late 19th, early 20th century.



Questions:

1/ "You in N. California to Canada", can you picture out a twisted Sequoia from what you can see where they grow?

2/ If so, do you have links to examples?

3/ Do you know if a "clip-and-grow" approach would work on this species?

I wonder....
