More about the Redwood Grove

One of the most remarkable and unique plant communities in the world, our collection of Sequoia sempervirens represents the key species in this very special coastal plant community. These trees are the tallest living things on Earth and among the most well-adapted to their growing conditions. Stands of old-growth coast redwoods once flourished on more than two million acres but have been reduced by extensive logging during the last 150 years. The coast redwoods at San Francisco Botanical Garden were planted around the turn of the 20th century and are among the oldest trees in the Botanical Garden. More than 100 species of associated plants have been added over the past 40 years to represent a typical redwood forest community.
