Global warming can't slow growth of redwoods or sequoias, new study shows
But when it comes to redwood trees -- the ancient, iconic sentinels that scientists have worried may be at risk as the planet heats up -- global warming may actually be helping, at least for now, according to research to be released Wednesday.

Why would it? The CO2 would increase woody growth and the Sequoia already has ways to pump water up to the top. Most trees don't have a problem with AGW.
However, their range may become more restricted.
"Recent modeling by researchers at the California Academy of Sciences shows that if carbon dioxide continues to build in the atmosphere at the current rate -- up 30 percent since the mid-1800s because of the burning of fossil fuels -- temperatures, rainfall and fog levels at the southern end of the redwood range in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties will become unsuitable to support redwoods by 2100."

You said "may become" when your reference says "will become."
In English, "may" never replaces "will."

You really don't have a clue do you? You may 'prophecy'(say WILL as an absolute prediction) if you think you have a direct line to GOD, but I will not make any ABSOLUTE prediction and will restrict myself to 'may' as this allows for error (a trait among us science guys that you obviously do not understand).
