Description: Giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum [Lindl.] Buchholz) has long been noted for its size and beauty. It is widely planted as an ornamental and increasingly is being utilized for timber production. The workshop was the first ever designed to bring together the state-of-knowledge on giant sequoia and its management. Presentations covered its history, silvics, genetics, growth and yield, wood properties and products, insect and disease relationships, and management strategies. The proceedings are a useful reference for resource managers, foresters, naturalists, ecologists, and the interested public.

Key Words: giant sequoia, Sequoiadendron giganteum, Sierra redwood, mixed conifer forest type, resource management, Sierra Nevada (California)
