I suppose that most people know that the biggest trees in the world are found in California. The coastal redwoods are the tallest trees in the world and the sequoias are the largest trees by volume in the world. But, I don't think that most people differentiate between the two species. The redwoods are only found along the northern coast of California and rely upon constant moisture for their health. The sequoias, on the other hand, reside in the foothills and in the mountains of the Sierra. Half of the year snow covers the soil which they call home. The sequoias live in a mountain climate, 5000-8000 feet above sea level, and that might be a surprise to the novice who comes to Sequoia expecting the same sort of terrain that the coastal redwoods favor. If you vist Sequoia National Park be prepared for some mountain terrain and challenging hiking.
