Larry, I have seen in San Francisco in a shop on the Pier 39 small living Red Wood seedlings, they are in small bottles like a test tube. Each costs about 10 S. But I have no place in my garden for it. But you could plant some, really fun, they are already 3 years later a lovely tree!

Günter, it's a pretty tall tree. The tree is probably older than my house (built in 1957) and there was probably more competition for sunlight when this tree was small. Although this is near the edge of my back lawn near the house, the woods here are fairly dense, so the trees grow taller than they would if they didn't have to compete for the ample sunshine here.

Thank you Labkhand

Bea, I don't think Redwood trees would grow here, but they might!!!

Geoff, they are tall. :-)

Thanks Peter. There are some on the property that are much larger in diameter, but no taller. There must be a point at which trees do not grow taller before they start putting on weight....kinda like people :-))

Thanks Glenn. The angle was the trick in this photo.

Thank you Patrick. Yes, there are lots and lots of pine forest here. They are a renewable resource and there are lots of tree farms (and National Forest) here....and many varieties of pine trees and each variety is planted (partially determined ???) by the soil type here which varies from sandy to clay.

Paulina, this one is probably older than me, and I'm probably twice as old as you. :-)
