Move Over Monday: Redwood Forest.

Move Over Monday

Get on the road through the Redwood Forest.

Did You Know? (from Redwoods.info):

  • The Redwoods are 20 million years old.
  • The world’s tallest tree was discovered in late 2006 in an undisclosed location in the Redwoods National and State Park in Humboldt County. It was named Hyperion and is 379.1 feet tall, which is nearly six stories taller than the Statue of Liberty.
  • Redwoods have few natural enemies. Tannic acid makes them resistant to disease and insect infestation, and their thick, fibrous bark effectively resists fire.
