From Hollick (1930) (p. 57)

"The variety of forms that have been included under this specific name, ranging in age from Jurassic to Tertiary, renders impossible any critical comparison and discussion of our fragmentary specimens. Their reference to the species is to be regarded merely as the most convenient disposition that could be determined for them. They may be identified more or less satisfactorily with a number of Cretaceous forms of the species. A specimen collected at Bishop Rock, Yukon River (pl. 22, fig. 5), identified by Knowlton (1916) (p. 48) as Sequoia subulata Heer (misprinted "subalata") proves to be more satisfactorily identifiable as Sequoia reichenbachi."
