According to Redwood National Park they take 400 years to mature. Redwoods can become reproductively mature at around ten years though.
It depends on just where the tree is located. Large trees like the Redwoods have a particularly tough time producing offspring because there is so much cover from existing trees. Trees must receive a steady flow of sunlight to grow. However, once redwood trees have grown for around fifty years, they get to be about two feet in diameter. Around this time the trees become able to bear offspring, though they rarely will. Most continue to grow for many years, like many of the old-growth giants, reaching ages well over a thousands years.
