The Sequoia Tree
The Sequoia is an emblem for long life, for attaining your lofty dreams, stretching your limits, and reaching to be the best you can be…… to reach for the stars. The red bark of the tree speaks of energy, strength, health, power, renewal, and determination. Red is not shy in its vibration, and like the Sequoia it’s hard to overlook the intense energy. Dark red in particular represents the will, bravery and, nature’s abundance. This is the perfect companion to the Sequoia’s green bows that symbolize growth, hope, compassion, transformation, and rejuvenation.
