We would like to plant sequoia sempervirens "soquell" along two of our fence lines to create a privacy screen. One fence is 550 long and the other is 400 feet.

What spacing on center would you recommend to plant the trees?

We live in Granite Bay, CA zone 9.

Coast redwoods grow 3'-5' a year under ideal conditions, making them choice plants for hedges and screens. You can space them 3'-4' apart and shear them yearly for a dense hedge, or plant them 7' apart, offset, for a grove. Either way, they'll fill in the space in just a few short years.
