Trees Grove of Redwood National Park, California, gargantuan trunks grow within
20 feet of each other, in a forest carpeted with Swordfern. This is alluvial
plain habitat, where the river rises periodically and provides water for some
of the largest redwoods, in addition to the water the trees intercept from
the frequent fogs which envelop them.
