Have you ever wondered about those huge old trees, the Redwoods?
- Some of the Redwoods started growing right before Jesus was born.
- The oldest-known Redwood is about 2,200 years-old. There also are some older ones, but we don’t know their ages.
- The redwoods by Santa Cruz can grow up to about 300 ft. or more.
- Most redwoods you see are about 50 – 150 years old.
- The California Coastal Redwoods grow from Big Sur to south Oregon.
- The Latin or scientific name for California Coastal Redwood is sequoia sempervirens.
- Scientist show that Redwoods catch more carbon dioxide (CO2) than any other tree.
- Without the Redwoods, some animals would be endangered or even extinct.
- Redwoods can be used as great building wood because its bark can be 1 foot thick.
Redwoods are beautiful trees. We should help Redwoods grow and learn more about them.
