Only 4% of the original great coastal Redwoods survived the coming of the white man. They faired about as well as the average Native American tribe.
But today they are largely protected, thanks to the efforts of conservation groups like the Save the Redwoods League, who purchased them to place them into the care of the California State Parks.
These giants can grow over 300 feet tall and can live over 1,500 years. The remaining groves are found in the far North of California North and South of Eureka. Find and hug one today!
