Life in and out of the woods…
Tall and straight,
High enough to crowd the sky,
I hope you enjoyed your virtual visit to ‘Parque Secuoyas’ in Cantabria, Spain.
This Redwood Forest is located just outside the rural township of Cabezón de la Sal, in the province of Cantabria, its capital city is Santander.
It was planted in the 1940s when Spain needed a new long-term source of raw materials. Over 800 red sequoias were planted on an 2.5-hectare (six-acre) hillside patch.
Today it this forest is a “protected natural area”, where nature-loving visitors can enjoy a peaceful, easy, one-hour hike, wandering amidst about 850 giant trees, between 36 metres (118 feet) and high 50 m (164 ft), high.
