National Geographic Explores California's Redwoods
The article also features info on the threat of more redwood destruction by Green Diamond in Humboldt and Del Norte Counties.
What the maps show is that 18% of the historic range of the Coast Redwoods is protected in public or privately preserved lands.
That means that 82% of the historic range of the trees is open for logging.
However, 80% of the ancient or "second growth" redwoods are preserved.
