Yes! The sequoia is one of three trees commonly known as redwoods, but when we say ‘redwood’ it is most often the sequoia to which we are referring. Interesting fact: sequoias can live up to 2,200 years!
Sequoia refers to what is also commonly called the coastal redwood, while the giant sequoia is synonymous with the sierra redwood, so they are basically the same trees, not just in the same family.
Both the giant sequoia/sierran redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum) and the coastal redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) are in the Cupressaceae family. However, as indicated in the latin name, they are in defferent genuses (which is a more specific level of classification than family).
