The redwood forest inspires the students in our Redwoods and Climate Change High School Program.

In celebration of National Poetry Month, I bring you some haikus written by students from Skyline High School.

During our redwood field trips with students, Save the Redwoods League tries to appeal to all the different ways redwood trees elicit inspiration for youth. The following haikus were written by students in our Redwoods and Climate Change High School Program.

Love for all redwoods
Big and luscious trees galore
Tall and mossy green
-Jennifer

Tall and mossy green
Up into the sky they reach
I love redwood trees
-Sophia

Through the muddy trail
We made our way up until
We found ourselves here
-James

Redwood trees are cool
Mother Nature gave us trees
We are blessed, thank you
-Jessica

Wolfgang in the woods
Redwoods trees are very tall
Sprouts on the bottom
-Wolfgang

This redwood tree is
An inspiration to all
That come across it
-Mackinley

My fingers are cold
I really need to pee now
What a great field trip
-Maya

Hopefully, during National Poetry Month, you will be inspired to write your own haikus after visiting these amazing trees.
