Coast Redwoods are species of evergreen trees in the genus Sequoia. They are the tallest living species of tree in the world and they can live well over 2,000 years. Redwoods can grow taller than the Statue of Liberty with trunks up to 9m (30ft) in diameter. The current tallest tree on Earth is a Redwood named Hyperion at 115m (380ft). Its location is kept secret to keep it safe. Redwood lumber is largely resistant to decay and redwoods are among the fastest growing trees.
The three redwood subfamily genera are Sequoia from coastal California and Oregon and Sequoiadendron from California's Sierra Nevada in the United States and Metasequoia in China. These trees can live for thousands of years. Threats include: logging, fire suppression, climate change, illegal marijuana cultivation, and burl poaching. Only two of the genera, Sequoia and Sequoiadendron, are known for massive trees. Trees of Metasequoia, from the single living species Metasequoia glyptostroboides, are much smaller.
