Armstrong Redwood Grove

July 12th, 2008 | Category: Blog

The famous Armstrong Redwoods are located just 30 minutes from “At the Bay’s Edge”.

Here are just some of the highlights of this incredible grove of redwoods:

The Tallest Tree
The Parson Jones Tree is the tallest tree in the grove, measuring more than 310 feet in height. This is longer than the length of a football field!

The Oldest Tree
The Colonel Armstrong Tree is the oldest tree in the grove, estimated to be over 1400 years old.

The Icicle Tree
This tree shows the unusual burl formations often found on redwood trees. Burls can weigh many tons and grow hundreds of feet above the forest floor. Why these growths occur remains a mystery.

It’s an incredible experience to be surrounded by these trees.
