Maybe it's hiding under something else?

Thanks

Carole, I have better results when searching by plugging in LESS rather than more info. That will bring up usually a pretty short list and then you can pick which one makes the most sense for what you are looking for. In the above example, I just searched for 'redwood' and got this entry (among others):

Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens)

Or, if you are looking for Giant Sequoia, I searched 'giant sequ' because I can never remember the order of the ending, and got this entry (among others):

Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum)

I've never heard of a Giant Redwood, personally, which doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Hope this helps your search.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
