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!
—Karen Edgar

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.
—Chris Schlaman

They’re only found in limited areas along the US west coast, and they inspire me and fill me with peace.
—Julie Hope

They are majestic and the tallest trees on Earth. There’s nothing like the cathedral-like feeling of standing alone among the giant trees.
—Carl Chavez

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.
