Coast redwoods

The world’s tallest living things, redwoods reach up to 380 feet, higher than a 30-floor skyscraper, and also are among the oldest with a lifespan that can exceed 2,500 years. Redwood fossils date back more than 200 million years to the Jurassic period, when giant reptiles roamed the earth.

The tallest tree at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Preserve in Guerneville is 310 feet tall; the oldest more than 14 centuries old.

Prior to the Gold Rush, redwoods grew on 2 million acres or more on the West Coast; today only 5 percent of old-growth redwood forest remains, covering just 120,000 acres in a 450-mile coastal strip from southern Oregon to central California, with about 75 percent of it protected in parks and reserves. Redwood forests of mostly young trees cover 1.6 million acres, about the size of Sonoma and Napa counties combined, and less than one-third of it protected.
