Vegetative propagation can be used for coastal redwood (Sequoia sempervirens (Lamb. ex D. Don) Endl. [Cupressaceae]). Techniques may vary among propagators, but overall, rooting percentages improve when young seedlings are the source of donor wood. As the age of the donor plant increases, concentrations of rooting hormone should also increase to maximize success. At the outplanting stage, relatively cool air and soil temperatures are important factors for survival of the rooted cuttings.
