If you are interested to become a 'redwood spotter' please send in your redwood sightings via this website's contact page or find us on Facebook. The sketch below will help you identify the three redwoods.


A. Sequoiadendron giganteum (Giant): large cones with fringe-like foliage with soft red bark.

B. Sequoia sempervirens (Coast): smaller cones with needle foliage which, mostly, have a characteristic white line on the underside of the needles.

C. Metasequoia glyptostroboides (Dawn): this is the only deciduous redwood and has needle type foliage where each one grows out directly opposite it from the one on the other side. The trunk also stands out with its 'barley-twist' like shapr like shape and 'armpit' like form under the branches.
