Coastal Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) - Conical shaped tree with dark
green needle-like foliage arranged in flat sprays. Native to
foggy coastal areas of southwest Oregon and northwest California.

stimulant. Sprouts are used to create baskets and the wood is valuable
for lumber. The tree prefers a rich moist well-drained soil in cool
humid, sheltered areas, but are rather tolerant and can succeed in moderately
chalky or poorly drained soils.
Hardy to 10F (-17.7C); height: 50ft.
