Redwood, New Zealand

"Redwood" is the name given to two different places in New Zealand.

Redwood, Wellington

Redwood is a southern area of Tawa, a ward of Wellington, New Zealand. It is on the North Island Main Trunk Railway and is served by two railway stations: Redwood Railway Station and Takapu Road Railway Station. The line was originally built on a different route slightly further east by the Wellington and Manawatu Railway Company, and the Wellington to Paremata section opened on 24 September 1885 without a station in Redwood. The line was incorporated into the New Zealand Railways Department network in December 1908, but the stations in Redwood were not opened until 19 June 1937, when the present-day route on the Tawa Flat deviation was opened and the older, more circuitous route closed.

Redwood is a suburb in Christchurch which includes the sub-division of Redwood Springs. The suburb was first named "Styx" but renamed following a popular vote of local residents in the 1960s after a large Sequoia redwood tree still standing in Prestons Road. The original forest cover was Totora and Kahikatea.
