The One-Of-A-Kind Forest In Northern California Where You Can Stand Taller Than A Redwood

The redwood tree is probably Northern California’s most iconic image. Our region is full of these towering trees, some of which are so huge you can drive a car through them. Every Northern Californian has made a special trip to see these magnificent trees in person. However, there’s a redwood forest in Sonoma County that may surprise you when you see it. Here, redwood trees are fully mature…but they stand just a few feet tall. If you decide to visit this pygmy forest, you’ll probably find yourself standing taller than a redwood! Find out why these redwoods are so small below.
