Redwood Stewards Join Forces For The "Grove Of Titans"

These are VERY big trees.

After the Grove of Titans of redwood trees was identified near Jedediah Smith State Park in 1998, car traffic on nearby roads increased dramatically, as did impromptu trails through the grove, many of which have received widespread publicity via social media.

The increased traffic has brought predictable negative impacts to the area. Now a partnership between environmental groups, California State Parks and the National Park Service has formed to protect the grove from being loved to death by humans.  Jess Inwood from Save the Redwoods League and Brett Silver from California State Parks visit with details of the grove and its care.
