REDWOODS. Humboldt Redwoods State Park in California is a fine example of a second-growth forest. Second-growth trees grow after the original old growth forest was logged (clear-cut). These second-growth forests are a little more open than the old growth forests, allowing sunlight to sometimes reach the forest floor.
The coastal Redwood trees grow up to 300 feet in height and can live for hundred of years, but are still being threatened. Even though the parks are protected, the areas around the parks continue to be logged, affecting the entire ecosystem. This photograph was shot with a 4x5 view camera with 90mmm lens on color negative film. I scanned the film and used Adobe Photoshop to adjust the final image.
