Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) once dominated the California and Oregon coasts. Today they are limited to isolated mountains, canyons and valleys generally protected by a government agency.
Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) are elegant, giant and beautiful trees. They are the tallest trees on earth, they can soar towards the sky nearly 400 ft. The oldest specimen on record is more than 2,000 years old, with hundreds of others well established before Columbus landed still thriving. Prior to commercial logging, Redwoods dominated the skyline from the California Coast through southwestern Oregon. The bark on these evergreen trees is a reddish black and can be up to 12 in. thick.
