According to the early Save-The-Redwoods League arguments the coastal redwoods in California were among the largest and oldest living things on earth and as such, they needed to be protected. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s the Save-The-Redwood League raised money through donations to purchase several groves in Humboldt and Del Norte Counties. These purchases would later become the foundations for various Redwood State Parks in Northern California.
