Redwoods are one of the Sequoiaidea family.

The Sequoia dendrogiganteum, Giant Sequioa is shorter and fatter, and inhabits the Sierra Nevada. They can grow up to 270 feet high, and 20-25 feet in diameter. They live to 3,000 years or more.

The Coastal redwood, Sequoia sempervirens, is taller and skinnier. The Redwood may grow to 370 feet high, and 10-25 feet in diameter. They grow on the Northern coasts of California and may reach 2000 years of age.
