The Life Cycle of a Coastal Redwood in Arid Southern California.

The Carbon Canyon Redwood Grove was planted in 1975 with seedlings donated by a bank. Today, 241 redwoods have survived the arid climate, though they will never reach the size of the redwoods living in the northern coastal climate. Earlier in the 20th century, the Carbon Canyon area was part of a booming oil production industry.
