If you’re still wondering what to get for the friends and family on your holiday shopping list, consider having a redwood seedling planted in their honor! I think this is one of the most special gifts out there (ahem, if any friends of mine happen to be reading this—take note!). Your seedling gift contributes to reforestation efforts, adding a tree to an area where it is needed most. Besides being beautiful, the tree will eventually provide important habitat for forest animals, including threatened and endangered species like the spotted owl. And unlike most gifts, the redwood tree will be around for a long, long time – potentially thousands of years! Talk about a gift that truly keeps on giving.

The last day to order a seedling gift for the holidays is Wednesday, December 12. Visit the website today to place your order! Save the Redwoods League will send a beautiful commemorative card to the recipient. Not only will they be thrilled with the meaningful gift, you’ll get to know that your gift is literally helping to make the world a better place.

Burned out but not fading away


It’s fairly difficult for me to imagine living for 3,000 years. Yet giant sequoias live for millennia, standing tall in a single location as the years, decades, and centuries tick by. They are pounded by rain, snow, sweltering heat, lightening, Continued
