Unlike any forest that a human has ever seen, the giant sequoia redwoods stand majestically for nature lovers.

Enormous trees that bridge the barrier between the ground and the sky soar into the clouds and reach impossible heights. Giant sequoia trees, often referred to as redwoods, leave many modern buildings in their shadows by simply growing to unrivaled heights. These trees often accomplish this unfathomable task through persistence and adaptation, and many live to 3,000 years old when untouched by loggers or destroyed by human ignorance.

In northern California, forests unlike any others, grow and have since been protected by state and federal parks, owing to the trees’ rarity. Although these massive trees’ size prove incredibly difficult to cut and haul, American loggers’ thought only about profits until California and Oregon passed restrictions and heavily enforced them, preventing the sequoias’ extinction. Currently, over 8 national parks, including Yosemite National Park boast giant sequoias for people to marvel.

As giant sequoias age, their size allures people as its main attraction unrivaled by any other North American continent trees. Some lucky trees soar to 300 feet into the air with a 30 feet wide trunk, supporting its larger structure. Many giant sequoias tower over modern buildings, and many still look lovely at their life span’s end after they fall to the ground.

The Hume-Bennett Logging Company fell the last giant sequoia in 1924, but its wood, highly decay resistant, many commercial businesses still seek. Thanks to extensive conversation efforts, these giant sequoias now safely reside in a forest and even have names, with the most famous one called “Grizzly Giant”.

Travelers–come visit the giant sequoia redwoods that inhabit northern California soon!

Woodsman, spare that tree!

Touch not a single bough!

In youth, it sheltered me.

And I’ll protect it now.

George Pope Morris, (1802-1864)
