With a lifelong interest in Horticulture and trees I have always wanted to see some of the giant Redwood Trees in California. There are two closely related but distinct species.
1. The coastal Redwood Sequoia sempervirens
2. The giant Redwoods of the high Sierra Nevada. Sequoiadendron giganteum
Not to be defeated I am planning to return to California. I would be most grateful for any advice about the location of the finest Redwood trees and how to get there from San Francisco. Also what is the best time to visit?.
