Your Art Class Visits the Gentle Giants


The gentle giants of California's north coast are the ancient redwood trees. The redwoods are the giant sequoias with the botanical family Sequoioideae. These gentle giants have been recorded to be as high as 367 feet and as wide as 26 feet. A tunnel was actually carved through the Wawona tree in Yosemite National Park as a tourist attraction in 1881 so that cars could drive through. The tree was 2100 years old when it fell in 1969. The trees have no tap root, but have roots that spread wide and keep the huge redwoods strong. The redwood forests are powerful. Your Art Class can make your own forest.
