Hiking Humboldt

Region E: Southern Redwoods

RegionEThe redwood forests of the Eel River watershed are quite different from those of northern Humboldt County.  The summer climate here is warmer and drier and the vegetation reflects this in several conspicuous ways.  The understory is much more open and the vegetation composition is different, with fewer ferns, more poison oak, and vast carpets of redwood sorrel. The redwoods themselves are essentially restricted to the alluvial flats along streams and often, just a few yards up-slope, the dominant trees are Douglas-fir and tanoak.
