The coastal redwood, or simply 'redwood', is the tallest tree on Earth, reaching a height of 379' and living 3500 years or more.  It is native to coastal California and the southwestern corner of Oregon within the United States, but most concentrated in Redwood National and State Parks in Northern California, found close to the coast where moisture and soil conditions can support its unique size and growth requirements, Sequoia sempervirens Sunset and boulders, Joshua Tree National Park.  Sunset lights the giant boulders and rock formations near Jumbo Rocks in Joshua Tree N.P Kelp frond showing pneumatocysts, Macrocystis pyrifera, Santa Barbara Island Blue shark and offshore drift kelp paddy, open ocean, Prionace glauca, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Diego, California Blue shark and offshore drift kelp paddy, open ocean, Prionace glauca, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Diego, California Basket Star and Giant Metridium anemone, Browning Pass, Vancouver Island, Gorgonocephalus eucnemis, Metridium farcimen Kelp fronds and pneumatocysts.  Pneumatocysts, gas-filled bladders, float the kelp plant off the ocean bottom toward the surface and sunlight, where the leaf-like blades and stipes of the kelp plant grow fastest.  Giant kelp can grow up to 2' in a single day given optimal conditions.  Epic submarine forests of kelp grow throughout California's Southern Channel Islands, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Clemente Island Salema schooling amid kelp forest, Xenistius californiensis, Macrocystis pyrifera,, Catalina Island The Kelp Forest offshore of La Jolla, California. A kelp forest. Giant kelp grows rapidly, up to 2' per day, from the rocky reef on the ocean bottom to which it is anchored, toward the ocean surface where it spreads to form a thick canopy. Myriad species of fishes, mammals and invertebrates form a rich community in the kelp forest.
