This redwood was planted in Capitol Park in Sacramento, California in 1976. It is located by the Capitol building next to the security pavillion. The tree is about 120 feet tall with a canopy of approximately 40 feet. The pavillion plans were designed to ensure the tree's safety. The tree was featured on Huell Howser's "California's Gold" program in 2008.
