Thousands of tree rings in these ancient trees – each over 1000+ years old or even much older…such a shame…irreplaceable giants.

National park treasures all gone but a few – what kind of men would do such a thing for over 100 years – destroy something they cannot ever fix or replace for 2000 years? It is an evergreen, long-lived, monoecious tree living 1200–1800 years or more. An estimated 95% or more of the original old-growthredwood forest has been cut. In 1850, old-growth redwood forest covered more than 2,000,000 acres…down to 8,100 acres by 1968, by which time nearly 90% of the original redwood trees had been logged.
