The Redwood Forests’ ecosystem is an incredible and incredibly complex world. Unlike any other and their existence provides us with a way of understanding time and our place in this world.

Among these ancient trees, new life grows out of the decay of the forest floor. The past visibly intertwining with the present, feeding the rest of the forest through decomposition. Some of the Redwood trees date back to the Roman Empire and have survived fire, storm, earthquake and disease. Despite these challenges the forests have continued to flourish and evolve over time.

But human-made climate change threatens this balanced ecosystem. As a result, the next thirty years will dramatically impact the future of the Redwood forests. This series of photographs by Lincoln Schatz explores the Redwoods in this moment of accelerated climate change. They are a call to action for us to adopt polices and plans that will mitigate future damage for current generations and those to come.
