California conservation group buys significant tract of old-growth redwoods

Capping one of the most significant redwood preservation deals in the Santa Cruz Mountains over the past 20 years, the non-profit Save the Redwoods League has signed an agreement to buy 564 acres of redwood forests and other lands near the San Mateo-Santa Cruz county line for $9 million.


The property, owned by the Holmes family of Danville since 1978, features more than 100 acres of old-growth redwoods, including one massive tree that scientists say is 528 years old — meaning it was growing in the same spot when Christopher Columbus set sail for the Americas in 1492.
