If you’ve never had a chance to hike beneath the Coast Redwoods of California, you’ve missed out on a singular experience. The quiet majesty of that forest swallows you up only a few yards off the roadway, with the ancient giants (over 2,000+ years old, some of them) towering silently overhead.
Like we’ve treated so many of nature’s resources, they were ruthlessly logged a century ago, with only a few stands of the old-growth left. But efforts are underway to restore them, as seen in this news story I saw online last week. With a bit of luck, the generation of trees being planted by this group will far outlive the effort being put in today.
