Redwood is a suburb located in Christchurch, New Zealand 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 Totara and Kahikatea. Redwood has its own community radio station called Good Music FM 107.5 (formerly known as Radio Redwood).
