Mountain, sea, and forest. Have you ever imagined of sticking with three of them in one large area? You must take a look at Redwood National and State Parks to figure it out. This is a region consisting of coastal mountains which border Pacific Ocean; in the north side of San Fransisco, the United States. The area takes form of forest dominated by the tallest as well as the most notable tree in the world; the redwood tree.
Study of archaeology shows that redwood trees have been used by Native Americans since three thousand years ago; to notice the existence of this species in America; particularly in California State. The conservation began in 1918 when some conservationists founded Save the Redwood League. The system of current state park was used since 1927. The conservation efforts continued to grow and United Nations in September 1980 listed this Redwood National and State Parks as World Heritage Site.
