    A View from the Top of the Redwood Forest


    The redwood forests of coastal California are a unique environment, found nowhere else on Earth. These forest giants are also arks of biodiversity, and can teach us many lessons about the lives of trees and other organisms. This presentation draws from lessons learned during a climbing expedition with Dr. Steve Sillett, the foremost redwood researcher in the world, during which the team used sonic tomography to assess the level of internal decay in the highest reaches of the redwoods. While the technical assessments are interesting in themselves, this rare look into the canopy of the Coast redwoods will leave the presentation audience in awe of these majestic trees.
