  title={Naturalization of Sequoiadendron giganteum (Cupressaceae) in Montane Southern California},
  author={Rudolf Schmid and Mena Schmid},
After the August 1974 fire in the upper Hall Canyon area on the southwestern flank of Black Mountain in the northwestern San Jacinto Mountains, Riverside Co., California, the United States Forest Service revegetated the burn in the mixed-conifer forest with the Sierra Nevada endemic Sequoiadendron giganteum (Cupressaceae). On 1 May 2009 a GPS census starting at the head of Hall Canyon revealed both in the canyon and upslope beyond it at least 157 individuals in the vicinity of the Black…

Resistance of natural vegetation in the San Gabriel Mountains of California to invasion by introduced conifers
For a century, foresters have been attempting to expand the conifer forests of a rugged southern California mountain range by planting both native conifers, of which there are thirteen species, and
Habitat restriction in Giant Sequoia: the environmental control of grove boundaries.
Measurements of soil-moisture stress and water-potential measurements of coniferous species within the Giant Forest, the largest extant giant sequoia grove, indicate that conditions of water availability for plant growth are more favorable inside the grove than outside.
The Environmental Tolerance of the Seedling Stage of Sequoiadendron giganteum
The young trees of Sequoiadendron giganteum are more drought resistant than previously thought, and capable of growing and surviving under a wide range of soil moisture and shading conditions.
