    Redwood Forests Redwood National Forest is comprised of the official Redwood National Park and Redwood State Park and located in northern California. Although the Redwood forest once exceeded two million acres (8,100 sq km), mining and logging has reduced the forest down to the current protected areas which cover a collective area of 131,983 acres (534.12 sq km). The Redwood forest runs along 37 miles (60 km) of the northern California coastline.

The coast redwood is the tallest tree in the world, averaging about 300 feet high. The oldest known redwood trees lived to be 2,200 years old.
