There are many redwoods over 240 feet, with the tallest found topping out at 275 feet. It grows about ten miles from the Pacific between State Route 128 and the Navarro River. This tree is about 150 years old with a diameter of ... five feet. Amazing.

Certainly this tree should reach 300 feet in height before it is 200 years old.

I assume this is an exceptional height for second growth but do not see much documentation on this subject.

Mark, I have never seen 2nd growth this tall for redwood. Those trees are exceptional.
