The Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) is the tallest tree in the world, reaching heights of up to 380 feet (115 meters). These massive trees are native to the coastal regions of California and can live for over 2,000 years.

Coast Redwoods grow in a variety of habitats, from dense forests to open grasslands, but they prefer moist, acidic soil. The Coast Redwood’s distinctive bark is reddish-brown and deeply fissured, while its needles are glossy and green.

These trees produce large cones that can weigh up to 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms).

Coast Redwoods are an important part of the ecosystem, providing shelter and food for animals like deer, squirrels, and birds.
