Why I Stand for the Redwoods
The coast redwoods and giant sequoia are quintessentially American and attract awestruck visitors from around the nation and the world. They are the West Coast Statues of Liberty. Thank you for serving as the custodian of an important piece of our American quilt.

I am always humbled by their majestic beauty!
They are older than most living things on this planet! They date back to the ages of the dinosaurs, and there is an intelligence about them.
They’re only found in limited areas along the US west coast, and they inspire me and fill me with peace.
They are majestic and the tallest trees on Earth. There’s nothing like the cathedral-like feeling of standing alone among the giant trees.
A visit to the forest is a humbling, rejuvenating experience. It is a trip into our history, present and future, and I’m always discovering new things even though I’ve been visiting them often for 15 years.
