Save the Redwoods League (League), the National Park Service (NPS) and California State Parks (State Parks) today announced a new commitment to heal previously-harvested redwood forests through a collaboration known as Redwoods Rising. One of the goals in the coming decades is to bring back stands of towering coast redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) on 40,000 acres of public lands in Redwood National and State Parks (RNSP). Redwoods Rising creates an unprecedented level of collaboration between these three organizations to restore the redwood forests and ensure the parks’ entire 120,000 acres exist as a connected forest ecosystem and a thriving landscape that supports and protects the natural and cultural treasures found there.
New initiative, Redwoods Rising, fast-tracks the growth of healthy redwood forests on 40,000 acres of parklands — providing clean air and water, storing carbon and fighting climate change. (Photo courtesy Save the Redwoods League)
