From the Forest, For the Forest since 1995

Forever Redwood History

International Day of Forests

Sunday marked the UN-designated International Day of Forests. This year’s theme is “Forest restoration: a path to recovery and well-being.” The gifts of the Earth’s forests are unending. Standing forests are enormous reservoirs of carbon, making them the original global cooling technology. They also support our emotional and mental well-being, as described in this Time article.

Recreating Old-Growth Forests

Once an old-growth forest is cut down, can it be recreated? After almost all the large trees are gone and the land is cut up by roads? After the soil is exposed to direct sun and rain and erosion has lowered its productivity? After the streams are filled with sediment and the fish populations plummet? Recreating Old-Growth Forests

Tree Planting 101

In December ’99, we planted our first 2,000 Redwood trees. It seemed straightforward and we were excited to finally reach this phase in the restoration work. After years of hard labor thinning the overgrown young forest of excessive hardwoods and suppressed dying trees, we looked forward to the forest slowly becoming mostly Redwoods again.
