Bark

Bark, Coastal Redwood, Carbon Canyon Regional Park, Brea, CA

The soft, fibrous bark of the coastal redwood is fire resistant. Tannins in the bark, which can be up to 12 inches thick on a mature tree, help protect the tree from insect damage. California’s coastal redwood is the tallest tree on earth, reaching as high as a 30-story building. Trunks as wide as 27 feet have been noted. The bark in the photo is from a younger example of a tree that can reach 2000 years old. On older trees, the bark is bright orange-red.
