The Coast Redwoods

The coast redwood also comes from California where its timber is highly valued. The tree grows in a narrow strip on the pacific coast and can reach a height of 100 m. In Germany the tree, which is related to the Redwood, never proves to be particularly hardy. In hard winters the crowns of even older trees die back at least partially. The three examples in Liliental were planted in 1961 and are cuttings of trees from middle European botanical gardens which have survived for many decades (see map 14).
