Giant Sequoias are so powerful and provide so many Giant Sequoias are so powerful and provide so many attributes to the ecosystem. They support so many communities and populations of species from plants to animals and insects. Not only are they one of the largest living organisms, their bark is composed of fine fibers and their sap contains tannic acid which makes them flame resistant. They are also resistant to fungal rot and beetles and other insects. However, slow burn fires are extremely important to their existence, growth, management, and to the forest overall. These are the kings of our forest. ✨🌲 #savetheredwoods #stand4redwoods ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

For #GivingTuesday, our nonprofit The Just Thanks For #GivingTuesday, our nonprofit The Just Thanks Organization is committing to donating $25,000 to the savetheredwoods's mission to buy Alder Creek, the most significant giant sequoia conservation project there is today.

This project is near and dear to our hearts living here in California and experiencing nature on a scale we could never fathom growing up on the east coast. We've witnessed the changes brought on by climate change over the past 20 years firsthand - it's time to chip in and take action.

A giant community effort 🙏 stay tuned for ways to get involved and donate! #2020Visions
.
And once we reach our goal, we'll be able to officially name one of the trees in the reserve - let's start brainstorming! 💚

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth f “Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

This batch of rings is headed out the door today, This batch of rings is headed out the door today, and I’m feeling so grateful. Grateful to be creating, learning, and connecting. I don’t know if it’s just the nature of this time of year, but things feel so messy right now. I’m trying not to let the clutter of life and unfinished business get to me, and trying to stay focused on moving forward, one step at a time. So when things do get finished, and when I can check even just one thing off the to do list, it feels sooooo good. That’s not to say there isn’t a million other things to tackle right after, but for just a moment, I’ll bask in the satisfaction of having accomplished something, no matter how small. Here’s to a productive start of a new week - what are you planning to get done today?

To show my appreciation for the magnificent redwoods of the west coast, I’ll be donating a portion of the proceeds from my shop to organizations that help protect the natural treasures of our country, starting with Save the Redwoods League savetheredwoods. These guys are involved in multiple projects aimed at protecting and restoring redwood forests. .
.
One of their current campaigns is raising donations to purchase privately owned land containing over 100 ancient giant sequoias to ensure their long-term survival. Any donations made by JUNE 25th will be matched, so you bet I’ll be meeting this deadline! Read more about this project (and donate!) here: https://www.savetheredwoods.org/project/red-hill/

.
While visiting redwoodnps we started researching where the tallest tree in the world is, because wouldn’t that be a neat thing to see! Well, we discovered that the world’s tallest known tree (379 ft tall!) is located about half a mile from this trail...and it’s location is undisclosed. Turns out naturalists stopped revealing the locations of the world’s tallest trees for their protection because people are disrespectful assholes.
.
Now, you can easily find directions to visit this tree online, but please don’t. People keep going off trail to find this tree & other tallest trees. In the process they destroy the vegetation beneath the tree that’s essential to its health. The trails & ranger instructions in our national parks don’t exist to limit our exploration. They exist to preserve these precious places for future generations.
.
Besides, on this trail you will see many trees over 350 ft tall and TRUST ME your wee human eyes will not be able to perceive the difference of that extra 40 feet. 😂 Allow yourself to be humbled to by these majestic trees & stop turning it until a 🍆 measuring contest. 😆 The trees sure don’t care!

Well after hiking Boy Scout Tree trail, which the ranger & some of you recommended, I see his point. We saw amazing sequoias at Yosemite, but the Redwood forest feels even more humbling. While there’s not a lot of redwood forests, there’s a lot of Redwoods in the forest. You’re surrounded by 300+ ft. trees. You’re a tiny creature passing through for the briefest moment in these magnificent & ancient living things 1000+ year lives.
.
You will see bigger trees on Tall Trees Grove trail, but we preferred Boy Scout Tree Trail because you will be more immersed in Redwoods. Easy, 5.3 mi round trip. The dirt road drive to the trailhead is equally breathtaking.

If you open your senses, you’ll notice the mornings getting crisper, the fog more persistent and the light more golden. The scent of dried redwood sprigs and eucalyptus.

Beneath the forest floor, a web of roots supports Beneath the forest floor, a web of roots supports the life above it through interconnected channels of communication. A forest is the epitome of harmony, an environment where thriving depends on the wellbeing of the collective. When one tree struggles, the rest provides. Roots are the root of it all—the source of nourishment, information and exchange.
.

I’m starting a collection of roots-inspired pieces to honor those unseen forces that make life possible, and to serve as a reminder to plant your own roots in healthy soil, where they can grow and mingle with the roots of others. A small batch will be released later this month.

Don’t be fooled by the smile. This picture was i Don’t be fooled by the smile. This picture was intended for a #marchmeetthemaker intro, but… well, here we are. I’ve hesitated to post anything for a while. I couldn’t put the words together, and am finding it hard to post anything as if it’s business as usual. I wish I could say I’ve been handling this with grace, finding solace in art, but it’s not true. I’ve been shamelessly scrolling through Facebook and reading way more news articles than is healthy, running worst-case scenarios through my head, feeling powerless and anxious and angry. I want to be hopeful, but not blind to the reality of the situation. But I also don’t want to look back at this time with regret. I want to remember patience and compassion, solidarity and hope. I want to remember creating beautiful things and connecting with others. The fresh spring air and puffy clouds, fog rolling over the mountaintops. The quiet. There is so much I can’t control, except for how I choose to use this time. I know that I speak from a place of privilege. The world being forced to stop in its tracks will hit some harder than others. But we’re all in this together, and there’s something kind of special about that. Hang in there, friends, and in all seriousness: stay home. Wherever you are in the world, don’t wait for your local government to order you to shelter in place - do it now. .

Right now we need stories of hope and resilience m Right now we need stories of hope and resilience more than ever. We’d love to hear and share your memories from the redwood forests. Please tell us a story and tag us. We’ll go first: “Years ago when I was working as a travel journalist, I had the good fortune of touring Redwood National and State Parks for the first time with one of our amazing @redwoodnps rangers Carey Wells. As we strolled through the ancient forest of Prairie Creek Redwoods (📍Yurok land), I was breathless among enormous old-growth coast redwoods, western hemlocks, big-leaf maples, and more. Scientists know that our sense of smell is closely connected to our memory, so that must be why I never forget the moment when Ranger Carey tore open a fresh California bay leaf and handed it to me for a whiff. It was the most invigorating fragrance. In that moment I realized what a sensory wonderland exists in the redwood forest. Beyond the unreal sights and the peaceful sounds of creeks and songbirds, even the forest’s aromas were more intense than anything I’d ever experienced in all the world. In California, we have the great privilege of protecting these special places for one another.” —Dana Poblete, Writer/Storyteller and Editor, Save the Redwoods League // 📷Max Forster
