Protecting Redwood Forests
There are 30,000 acres of unprotected redwoods in San Mateo and Santa Cruz counties alone. At POST, our goal is to protect them all.
Just 5 percent of California's original old-growth redwoods remain. Climate change poses a particular threat to the tree that is so perfectly adapted to California's climate.
Many of the state's unique animal species rely on redwoods for habitat. If the trees disappear, many threatened and endangered animals will go with them.
We think the human spirit will lose something irreplaceable, too.
