Sequoia sempervirens

Sequoia sempervirens

A coast redwood is an evergreen tree, living up to 1200 – 1800 years or more. It’s one of the tallest trees on Earth, reaching up to 116 m (379 feet ) in height and up to 8 m (26 feet) diameter at breast height.

Before commercial logging began by the 1850s, this massive tree occurred naturally in an estimated along much of coastal California (excluding southern California where rainfall is not abundant enough) and the southwestern corner of coastal Oregon.

They are jaw dropping awesome!
