The Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens - this means “ever living”) naturally grows on the North coast of America along the Pacific Ocean. It is an evergreen, long-lived, monoecious tree living for up to 2,000 years, and is commonly considered the tallest tree in the world, reaching up to 115.5 m

Its redish brown bark is thick soft and fibrous. The crown is conical, with horizontal to slightly drooping branches. Unlike most conifers, this tree will re-sprout from the remaining stump if cut to the ground.

Coast Redwood reproduces both sexually and asexually. Seed production begins at 10-15 years of age, and large seed crops occur frequently, but viability of the seed is low, typically below 20%.

The thick, tannin-rich bark, combined with foliage that starts high above the ground provides good protection from both fire and insect damage, contributing to the Coast Redwood's longevity.

  • There are 15 known living trees more than 110m tall.
  • There are 47 trees that are more than 105m tall.
  • A tree claimed to be 115.8m was cut down in 1912.
  • The tallest non-redwood tree is a 100.3m tall Douglas-fir.
