The article discusses California redwoods and the market for redwood logs. The increase in redwood log production in California contributed to an increase in product value of US$24 million. California market absorbs most of the available of the available redwood timber which is possibly the reason that markets for redwood outside of California have greatly contracted. Topics discussed include redwood areas in California being converted for other use, tallest trees including Icarus, Helios and Hyperion, and actively planting and growing redwoods due to the realization that is the most productive and valuable species to grow in California. INSET: Korbel KT a promising Christmas tree.
