    Description

    Mature second-growth redwood (Sequoia sempervirens (D. Don) Endl.) forests are an important and uncommon resource in the redwood region. Development of second-growth redwood forests beyond rotation age is not well understood. Continuous long-term data are especially lacking, considering that the maximum possible age of second-growth stands is now over 150 years. Two observation plots established in 1923 in the Arcata Community Forest provide a unique opportunity to examine the long-term development of second-growth redwood forest.
