California has many different types of trees. It is said that there are 318 different types of big trees in California. We are just starting to build out the list of California trees, so here is our growing and unscientific list of some of them:
Many of these trees are common in the parks and preserves throughout Northern California. The Redwood Trees are the most famous trees because they are the tallest trees in the world. Such trees need lots of nutrients to survive and are able to get those nutrients surprisingly due to the Pacific Coast's foggy climate. During the dry season when there is no rain, the fog that comes in from the Pacific Ocean brings enough moisture to feed the Redwoods.
