The Redwoods


The Redwood trees in Northern Califonia. Up in hte Mendocino county are the famous Redwoods – Sequoias actually. These are the tallest of the trees — somthing like a 200 footer is not unheard of, and may live for 2000 year! Thats a long time I say. And yes, the dont grow from seeds, rather from layering and sprouting from the root crown. If a tree falls over, it sprouts more trees along its trunk.
