Some of the tallest and oldest trees on Earth are in Redwood National Park and State Parks, managed jointly by National Park Service and California State Parks.
Established in 1968, Redwood National Park is located in northernmost coastal California, and is home to old-growth coast redwoods. These magnificent trees can live to be 2,000 years old and grow to over 300 feet tall. Spruce, hemlock, Douglas-fir, berry bushes, and sword ferns create a multiple-canopied understory. Redwood Park’s mosaic of habitats includes prairie and oak woodlands, mighty rivers and streams, and 37 miles of pristine Pacific coastline.
