#118 Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens)

This Coast Redwood has four main trunks, forming a cathedral-like shape. This occurs when the mother tree dies and the offspring originally surrounding the trunk mature. The manager of the property says that the heat of the southeast wears on this Redwood and it’s constantly transpiring water due to hot temperatures throughout the day.
