[edit] Information

They are living giants; one of the Earth's largest and oldest trees. Some tower more than 350 feet high, taller than the Statue of Liberty; some may have been seedlings when Jesus was born. Yet these natural legends still shroud centuries-old secrets. In a major National Geographic cross-platform event, which includes the October 2009 cover story for the magazine, we'll reveal the little-explored environment of the redwoods using high-tech aerial laser surveys and breathtaking imagery. Over three hundred feet above northern California are the canopies of the redwoods, the world's tallest trees. Humboldt State University's Steve Sillett, the first researcher to explore the redwood canopy, is obsessed with monster redwoods. Just when Sillett thinks he has climbed and measured an unbeatably tall tree, another one turns up in a hidden valley and breaks the record. As Sillett investigates redwoods up in their towering crowns, National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Mike Fay is charting the entire redwood range on the ground, step by step, on an epic year-long journey. Today, ninety-five percent of the original 2 million acres of coast redwood have been logged. Explorer discovers the past and future of these remarkable trees. Produced by John Rubin Productions, Inc.
