Hi,
I managed to grow a redwood tree in Poland out of a seed that I collected in Muir Wood in California 4 years ago. Last winter it froze a bit, but this winter was very moderate. Some branches look pretty healthy and I can see a couple of new shoots however the discoloration of many leaves concerns me. Is this a disease, pest, lack of nutrients or something else? Please advise.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

normal on my full grown 200ft tall Redwoods, which is the biggest problem with Redwoods
i kinda think it is from sunburn but don't really know
winter winds scatters all those needles all over my garden
and they are not all that easy to pickup Smiling

come spring you should see new growth on the tips of those branches

I'm impressed! Your tree looks good! Redwood trees don't live in super cold country - if your temperatures are much below -12C, your tree will suffer.
