Arbor Day

With a little love, support, and luck, this wee sprout at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park in California has a big future in store. It"s a coast redwood, the species that includes the tallest trees on Earth. Some top out at more than 350 feet tall and live for over 2,000 years. These redwoods are heroes of nature, affecting the weather and climate, while creating conditions essential for a healthy ecosystem along this stretch of the Pacific Coast.
