Did you know that redwoods have been around for millions of years, since dinosaurs and giant sloths roamed the earth? Did you know that the tallest redwood towers above a 37-story building?

Not only do they provide us with places to recreate, meditate and find inspiration, but they are richly important for the plants and animals they share a home with.
