The Once and Future Forest: California's Iconic Redwoods
Coast redwood and giant sequoia forests are true wonders of the world. Each individual tree has the potential to stand for thousands of years, reaching heights unmatched by any living thing and volumes so large that they defy comprehension. These trees support rare layers of life found nowhere else on Earth, some in the highest reaches of their canopies. Redwoods can even play a significant role in slowing climate change, as they store substantially more carbon from the atmosphere per acre than any other forest the world over. They are ancient marvels to behold, and they have withstood eons of change.
The Once and Future Forest explores the grandeur of the redwood ecosystems that sustain California and the deep love they have inspired among scientists, writers, artists, and the general public. On the occasion of the one-hundredth anniversary of Save the Redwoods League in 2018, the League, one of America's oldest conservation groups, commissioned five remarkable authors to write essays which convey the majesty and legacy of California's famed redwood forests. Originally published in a deluxe limited edition, The Once and Future Forest is newly presented here in a trade format.
