The summertime view of Sonoma County from the redwood canopy.
The summertime view of Sonoma County from the redwood canopy.

This week, I celebrated 10 years of coast redwood forest research and had the pleasure of climbing into an old redwood at the Grove of Old Trees in Sonoma County. This little-known forest is where I learned to climb in 2004 and where I still work today to track the response of sword fern to drought through Fern Watch.

Head to the Grove of Old Trees yourself this weekend and get information to plan your visit here.
