Caring for a Redwood Tree

Redwood Trees are pretty resilient on their own, as we can tell from the National forest located out in the west coast region of the country. They can withstand many harsh elements, but like any other living thing, they have weaknesses. In order to take care of them if you’re growing them yourself, you’ll need to make sure you’re paying attention to details when planting.

Redwoods thrive in moist and well-drained soils. In the winter months, Redwoods prefer a good amount of rainfall, and in the warmer months, they rely on heavy fog due to the humidity. These elements appear on the west coast, which is the reason why we have such massive Redwoods in these parts of the world.
