Bigtree is the giant drought resistant redwood with a world record for the largest trunk circumference. Though often confused, the narrow coastal species is taller, thinner, more pointed and darker green than this one. Bigtree is found in just a small area on middle elevation west slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The region experiences snow in winter and long dry summers. In the wild as in gardens, this tree demands absolute drainage.
The prickly foliage of the bigtree is bushier than the coast redwood, plus it bears a silvery color with bronze or purple accents to the new growth. It is cold hardy and well suited to mountain landscaping throughout the inland West, particularly in the Rockies. Slow growth but enormous eventual size makes this tree unsuitable for small or average homesites. It is best reserved for rural properties, open space and parks where they can spread and exhibit their natural rounded form. They make stellar choices for estate gardens where their majestic size and unique coloring can be contrasted against deep green conifers for winter interest. (source: learn2grow.com)
