The only sequoia in Eastern Canada has made it through its fifth winter in Chelsea, standing 61 feathery centimetres tall and preparing now for a spring growth spurt.

It’s six years since Chelsea artist Sarah Hatton planted 50 sequoia seeds indoors, and waited.

The sequoia is native to California. It is the world’s tallest tree species, and can live well into its second millennium. But it prefers gentle California weather.
