  • The seed used to grow these Coast Redwoods comes from trees adapted to higher elevations and harsher conditions at the species' most cold-hardy seed source
  • 100% guaranteed: If your seedling perishes, we are happy to provide a replacement small-sized seedling for just the cost of shipping/handling
  • Seed-grown without poison or pesticides at our nursery on California's Redwood Coast
  • Transplanting and care instructions included


Nursery Note:
Want to grow a Redwood, but worried about the cold? These trees — grown with seed collected from a wild stand at the very edge of the species' range in the Santa Cruz Mountains — have adapted to a higher, colder, and generally harsher environment than most Coast Redwoods can handle, and might represent your best shot at successfully growing the planet's tallest tree!

About Coast Redwood

Grow the world's tallest tree! Reaching heights greater than 365 feet, the magnificent Coast Redwood is not only the planet's tallest tree, but also one of the world's most long-lived, with life-spans of more than 2,000 years. Fossil records also indicate that the species is among the most ancient of trees; its lineage dating back 160 million years.

At maturity, typical Coast Redwoods tower 175 to 300 feet, and have massive trunks 8 to 20 feet in diameter with deeply furrowed, reddish-brown bark. Only 5% of America's ancient Redwoods remain, most under State and National protection. Now is a great time to plant a Coast Redwood!


About Jonsteen's Seedlings

All of our trees are seed-grown without poison or pesticides at our nursery on California's Redwood Coast, which is inspected monthly and licensed by the California Department of Agriculture. Trees can provide a natural barrier against high winds, temperatures, noise pollution and soil erosion, all while benefiting local air quality, wildlife and property values — a Jonsteen seedling will only grow in value and beauty!


About Jonsteen's 100% Guarantee

All of our trees are guaranteed to arrive healthy and in good condition. If your tree perishes despite your honest efforts, we will be happy to replace it with a small-sized seedling for just the cost of shipping/handling (typically under $5). You can learn more about our guarantee and tree replacement policy here.

Seedling Size Chart: Small

Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.

Caring for Redwoods

As its name implies, the Coast Redwood is a coastal species, native to the foggy, temperate regions of the far northern California coastline. This tree should be grown in areas where winter temperatures only occasionally drop below freezing. It loves misting, and thrives where it can receive a generous supply of water (although, like most plants, it definitely enjoys the opportunity to dry out somewhat in-between waterings).

The Coast Redwood can withstand some cold temperatures, but will not tolerate prolonged periods of sub-freezing weather. In terms of heat, the Coast Redwood can withstand significant periods of hot weather provided enough water is available. In hot climates, partial shading and occasional misting is advised for the Coast Redwood. In regions with colder climates, the Coast Redwood may be successfully grown indoors as a houseplant.
