Parks invite innovation. How we steward them will affect our planet’s changing climate in some way, great or small.
What better way to invest in the future than by planting coast redwood trees, which can store 200-250 tons of carbon dioxide per tree? The Thomas Redwoods site in the Presidio is now home to 75 unique redwood saplings: clones of some of the largest coast redwoods that ever lived.
