Why I Stand for the Redwoods
California redwoods are something to behold. Sheer awe. It’s the most healing experience you can find. It just makes you tingle.
— Ed Gilbert
Redwoods make people feel centered and connected to the planet. The length of time they’ve been standing — they are a testament to the past.
— Rose Marie Cleese
My Dreams for the Redwood Forest’s Next 100 Years
I hope for significant restoration of the redwood forest throughout Northern California. I hope for places where people can go and have the serenity and solitude that they seek.
— Candace Walker
I would like to think that if you come back to the ancient forest 100 years from now, it’ll look and feel just like this.
— Mary Topliff
