That is why I posted earlier about the pith not necessarily being in the center. Cut sections like your are excellent to help figure things out.
Again, I suspect more than one seed would have been planted at a nursery to get the sequoia's going but were never thinned at germination. I feel this is a common occurrence not just with seeds but with cuttings. Moss cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera) does not reproduce by seed to variety as far as I know. Yet, they are almost always multistemmed and drives me crazy. I presume this is because a thrifty nursery worker put more than one cutting in the pot to be sure it would be filled.
