Tracking Giant Sequoia and Bristle Cone Pine

They both arrived at 11.00 a.m. June 3rd. in perfect shape. The Giant Sequoia measuring 12" and The Bristle Cone Pine at 7" the trunk diameters are a little more than 3/8" for the GS and less than 3/8" for BCP. The race is on as the former is the largest and the latter is one of the slowest growing trees.
Thanks to: Joe at Welker's Grove Nursery
The trees came with elaborate instructions to care. To anyone undertaking a similar task, the GS
needs lots of water. 24 hrs w/out it is dead. The images of the trees advertised are the same as those received.

Over 3 hours in a truck out of the forest going west, hope the weather is cooler in CA
