Summary
They are perhaps the oldest lifeform known to us-and, as nature's skyscrapers, they are among the most majestic. From Giant Sequoia trees, those massive denizens of Northern Californian forests...to the Coast Redwood, the world's tallest tree species...to the Dawn Redwood, a living fossil that once flourished in China but now faces extinction... this program examines life on the grand scale of the redwood. Viewers learn about the natural history of these woodland behemoths as the film follows researchers looking for, and finding, the loftiest tree on Earth. The redwood forest's capacity as a natural habitat for myriad animal and plant species is also discussed.
