About High Elevation Redwoods
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, atop one of the highest ridges in the Santa Cruz Mountains — are 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
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!
