The coast redwood is unique among all conifers in its ability to reproduce asexually from sprouts and burls. Sprouts arise from dormant buds that grow commonly from the roots of a mature tree. One peculiar outcome is the occurrence of white redwoods, or “ghost trees”, originating as root sprouts that have genetically mutated and are completely non-photosynthetic. They derive all of their nutrients from the roots of their host. White redwoods are found only in old-growth forests, where the overstory biomass of photosynthetic redwoods is great. SFBG has one albino redwood at the west end of the Redwood Grove along the paved path. Cuttings of the albino redwood taken at SFBG have grown into typical trees with green foliage. There is still a lot that is not understood about this unique and rare phenomenon.
