Sequoioideae (redwoods) is a subfamily of coniferous trees within the family Cupressaceae. It is most common in the coastal forests of Northern California.

Cultural impact

John Steinbeck wrote about the redwood, "The redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always. No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe. It's not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time."<ref>Steinbeck, John (1961) Travels with Charley: In Search of America.Viking: New York.
