Redwood National and State Parks, California
Redwood National Park is located along the northwestern California coast. The Park protects about 45% of all redwoods and redwood growth forests in an expanse totaling 39,000 acres. The total acreage of the Park is 132,000 acres.
Redwoods are the tallest trees on Earth with lengths in excess of 300 feet. But, it usually takes 200 years for redwoods to grow that tall. Redwoods are thought to be the oldest trees on Earth as well but that isnít so. The oldest Bristlecone Pine tree in the Sierra Nevada mountain range is 4,500 years old.
There are three types of redwoods: The coast redwood is located in Redwood National Park along the pacific coast of the United States. The giant sequoia is located inland in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California and the deciduous dawn redwood is located in China and is diminutive by comparison growing to about 115 feet in height.
In addition to the giant redwood trees, Redwood National Park also protects fauna, flora, prairie, rivers, streams, and, of course, the coastline from development.
