Frequently Asked Questions … and Answers About the 10,000 Redwoods Project

Where are you going to plant 10,000 redwoods?

We are initially focusing on planting redwoods in Marin County, California in partnership with public agencies and private landowners. Our goal is to plant redwoods within their historic range in Northern California and are in discussions with partners in Sonoma and the East Bay.

Are you really planting 10,000 redwoods?

The number 10,000 draws its inspiration from Asia where the number means a myriad or limitless. For us, the actual number is less important than directly involving people in planting trees to take action to fight climate change.

Are you only planting redwoods?

Redwoods are the iconic species around which we are rallying action. Our restoration projects are ecosystem-focused. This means that when we restore an area we are not only planting redwoods but we are also planting ferns, alders, willow, juncus, thimbleberry, trailing blackberry, hairy honeysuckle, manroot, and more. Join us in our native plant nursery to see the diverse array of species we are raising for upcoming project sites.

How much does it cost to adopt a redwood?

You can adopt a redwood for as little as $100. Adopt your redwood today!

Can I visit my adopted redwood?

Our redwoods are planted on public and private lands so access can be limited. If you are interested in visiting a tree that you have already adopted, please contact us right after you adopt the tree so that we can do our best to plant your tree in a convenient location.

How can my school get involved?

We know that we cannot get all the redwood seedlings started ourselves. So we are partnering with select schools to help us grow seedlings. Contact our Educational Specialist Catie Clune to participate in this unique program.

What happens once I adopt a redwood?

We will email you to clarify the name of your tree and the correct information to print on the certificate before we mail it. You will then receive email updates about the project including an invitation to plant with us this winter.

Are you tree huggers?

Yes, we like hugging trees. We hug dogs and people, too.
