SMART to Relocate Cotati Redwood

Jul 22, 2014

The tree, beloved in Cotati, will soon have a new home that is not quite so close to the railroad tracks.

The fate of the rare  chimera coast redwood growing alongside the train tracks in Cotati has been settled. Officials with the SMART train have announced a new plan to relocate the landmark tree to a spot near the city's new train station. 

 The 50 foot tree is believed to have been planted about 45 years ago.
