A conservation initiative known as Redwoods Rising aims to restore California’s damaged redwood forests by mimicking the traits of healthy young forests, using methods like thinning and prescribed fires.
The project, carried out by Redwood National and State Parks and the Save the Redwoods League, seeks to combat the impacts of unchecked logging and address the challenges posed by climate change.
Redwoods, known for their ability to store carbon, face increasing threats from rising temperatures and wildfires.
Sequoioideae, commonly referred to as redwoods, is a subfamily of coniferous trees. It includes the largest and tallest trees in the world. These trees can live for thousands of years.
