Plans afoot to protect Grove of Titans in Redwood NP/Jedediah Smith Redwoods SP

An ambitious endeavor is getting underway to safeguard the Grove of Titans and adjacent forest in the Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park unit of Redwood National and State Parks in California. The first step is raising $500,000 by the end of the year to support the first phase of the project, which carries a $3.5 million price tag. 


California State Parks, Save the Redwoods League, National Park Service and Redwood Parks Conservancy are working together on the plan.  The Grove of Titans is a magnificent stand of ancient redwoods that contains some of the world’s largest trees. Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park is the wettest place in California and home to the forest with the world-record breaking amount of carbon storage above ground (2,600 Mg carbon per hectare)—a vital component in combating climate change.
