Save the Redwoods League
Since 1918, Save the Redwoods League has protected and restored redwood forests and connected people with their peace and beauty.
For those who have had the chance to stand in a redwood grove, there are few life experiences that match it. Even if you have only seen a photo of the few ancient redwood forests left—and most of us have—it's hard to imagine life on our planet without these awesome and majestic places. We can all agree that there are some places on Earth that are so special that they are worth saving. That's why there is such strong support for protecting redwood lands.
Unfortunately, today the work needed to protect redwood forests is harder and more complex than ever before. There are still ancient redwoods slated for cutting that need to be protected. Redwood lands already protected in state and national parks also face threats such as devastating government budget cuts. These cuts close parks, leaving no personnel to protect redwoods from threats such as illegal logging and pollution from marijuana cultivation. Some of these lands are still struggling to recover from years of past damage and neglect.
To thrive, protected forests also depend on the health of nearby land, much of which is privately owned, including property of commercial timber companies. Finally, we do not yet know the impact that the Earth's changing climate will have on the size, strength and survival of redwood trees and forests. With all these challenges before us, we are at risk of losing these magical places forever.
Save the Redwoods League has been protecting redwood lands for nearly 100 years. We're the only organization with the type of comprehensive approach needed to ensure that forests that take one thousand years to grow will be here for another thousand years.
