    Coastal Redwoods and Sequoias are very similar in their red bark appearance, but have a few visual differences. The Coastal Redwoods grow closer to the ocean and receive more moisture. Redwoods are also taller and thinner than their Sequoia counterparts. Sequoias grow a little further inland, and are reminiscent of cypress trees in that they are full and thick trees, but on a larger scale. Though both have the reddish color, they do remain different visually.
