The Redwoods!

See "Where To See The Redwoods" list at bottom

The ancient and spectacular redwood trees that dominate the Northern Mendocino California Coastal Forests ecoregion are among the biggest, tallest, and oldest trees in the world. Many of these trees have been growing for more than 2,000 years, with some reaching heights of more than 300 feet (90 meters). The life that flourishes within these ancient forests is highly diverse. In fact, only a few other forests in the world can compare in terms of their complex structure and biodiversity.

Did You Know:
It would take about 30 grown men standing shoulder to shoulder to encircle some of the largest redwood trees.

Don't miss Jackson State Forest covering 55,000 acres rich with Redwoods and other beautiful flora. And Montgomery Woods which contains the 367-foot-tall Mendocino Tree, the tallest tree in the world according to the Tall Trees Club. (See listings below for both these locations.)

From the luxuriant growth of moss and fungi on the forest floor to the rare marbled murrelets that nest only in ancient trees, these towering giants support communities of plants and animals much more diverse than those found in younger forests.

These towering giants are generally found within 40 miles (65 kilometers) of the coast. They are distributed among a wide variety of communities, including Douglas fir-tanoak forests, oak woodlands, closed-cone pine forests, bogs, and coastal grasslands. Most of the redwood-dominated forests are in valley bottoms, where there is abundant fog and periodic floods every 30 to 60 years. The environment here is moist because of Pacific storms in the winter and coastal fogs in the summer.
