While I wish these were not all cut down, I have to give a lot of respect to these men! I could not imagine being a logger cutting these giant redwood trees with only hand tools and oxen. California lumberjacks work on Redwoods. Thousands of tree rings in these ancient trees each over 1000+ years old or even much older…….. irreplaceable giants- national park treasures all gone but a few
In 1850, old-growth redwood forest covered more than 2,000,000 acres
(8,100 acres by… 1968, by which time nearly 90% of the original redwood trees had been logged.
