How Tall Is a Redwood Tree?

It can be hard to understand the true size of a California coast redwood tree (Sequoia sempervirens) until you measure it out. 


That is exactly what school children from the Santa Barbara Charter School have done at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden as part of a temporary fiber arts installation. 

See more of the fiber arts in the garden.

Walk the length of the world's tallest tree: "Hyperion" a 379 ft California coast redwood tree.

The Santa Barbara Botanic Garden's redwoods are only 79-90 years old. They are still babies.
