That is probably one of the big west coast of North America conifers. The trunk makes me think it is Sequoidendron giganteum - Giant Sequoia.

I agree Giant Sequoia

Thank you all for answering!
Is it possible to grow that sequoia in Polish environment? How do you go about germinating the cone at home?

Sequoiadendron giganteum are very fast growing....and they grow into giants.

Are you sure that you have the space.
I think they would grow well in Poland.

To grow one......Help can be found on next link.
Your cone is green..... they open after a couple of weeks in a dry place, they are loaded with small, winged seeds.

The tricky part will be getting the seeds to germinate. First, because a tree may produce seeds but it has to be a mature tree to produce viable seeds. and second, even if viable, they are really stubborn about germinating.

The Giant Sequoias don't grow as fast as regular redwoods but they are not suited to a small yard. The good news is that you won't have to worry about that in your lifetime. Smiling
