* Overview *
Jointly managed parklands that features an impressive diversity of nature, particularly the famous California Redwood, the tallest trees in the world.
Considered as one of the most unique ecosystems on our planet where there is a serene balance between ancient coast redwood groves, gray whales, black bears, banana slugs and much more.
In the late 1800's western expansion and development threatened the continued existence of these majestic trees. By 1900 the future of old growth redwood forests was in jeopardy. Both state and federal government started to come forward to create parkland reserves to protect the trees and associated habitat in the 1920's.
From a seed no bigger than one from a tomato, California's coast redwood (Sequoia semperviren) may grow to a height of over 350 feet and have a width of 22 feet at its base. That is as high as a 35-story skyscraper. Many of these trees live over 600 years and some are even 2,000 years old.
California's North Coast provides the only such environment in the world. A combination of longitude, climate, and elevation limits the redwoods' range to a few hundred coastal miles. The cool, moist air created by the Pacific Ocean keeps the trees continually damp, even during summer droughts. These conditions have existed for some time, as the redwoods go back 20 million years in their present range.
