In addition to redwood (Sequoia sempervirens), a number of other conifers create the forest canopy in Redwood National and State Parks. How many species can you find in this view?

    Just saw your caption !! Big one is redwood - a freebie. Incense cedar doesn't really flourish in that microclimate anyway, does it?

    How many species? Okay, I'll try. The big tree in the foreground, for as clear as my monitor shows it, has foliage that could be incense cedar or redwood. I can't tell if they are flat scale-like foliage, or short spiky like upper redwood needles. Although the bark is reddish, and the limbs curve like incense cedar can, It's height seems to connote redwood. Didn't see cones of any size. To the right, there are a couple of trees with visible cones on top. Cones too big for redwood. Could be D. fir or Sitka spruce. Something about the bark color and texture leads me to guess Sitka spruce. Although the form is similar to Douglas fir. Didn't see and drooping leader tips or branch ends that looked like western hemlock. M. D. Vaden
