Albino Redwoods

By Barry Evans

…….The 30-foot tall “Christmas Tree,” is located in the Women’s Federation Grove just off the Avenue of the Giants in Humboldt Redwoods State Park. A 20-foot tall Spirit Tree, sprouts from the base of a giant redwood in a grove three miles north of Redcrest…………..They don’t exceed 60 feet, Where one normal  sequoia sempervirens has grown to 379.1 foot “Hyperionredwood…..
……..The albinos are mutant individuals that lack the capacity to manufacture chlorophyll. Their leaves are creamy white and waxy. They’re parasites.  They get their nutrients by grafting their roots onto those of normal trees………..
