The coast redwood, whose scientific name is Sequoia sempervirens , is the tallest known plant species in the world. It is also the fastest growing conifer, or cone-bearing tree, in North America.

Coast redwoods are among the oldest living things on earth. The oldest known specimen was logged in 1933. A count of the growth rings revealed that the tree was 2,200 years old. Most redwoods, however, live an average of six centuries.
