An Albino Redwood Tree grows in the shadow of it’s host. Albino Redwoods are unable to produce chlorophyll which results in needles that are white instead of green. Albino redwoods must join their roots to the parent (or host) tree in order to obtain nutrients as a parasite. There are sixty known locations for these rare trees and the exact locations are kept secret.
