Cascadia's Original Forests

We don't even know what we lost

 

Cascadia’s forests include the most carbon dense biomes on Earth.

The world’s tallest trees are the coast redwoods of northernl California.

 

 

But even the remnants of old growth pale compared to the original forests chopped down a century ago.

It’s hard for us to even imagine what North America was like when a squirrel could travel from the Mississippi to the Atlantic without setting a paw upon the ground.
