False. Yosemite may be closed but Big Basin Redwood State Park (shown here) about 25 miles south of Santa Cruz has plenty of big trees -- and it's open. So is Calaveras Big Trees State Park north of Arnold. Check out hipcamp and the California State Parks for more cool places to find redwoods and sequoias.
