Pages of History: Redwoods on riverbank to be spared

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, September 1945.

Del Norte’s beautiful redwood groves along the north bank of Smith River, now being felled by the woodsmen’s ax and milled at the Crag Plant at Smith River, will be preserved.

This announcement is made by E. F. Benedict, chairman of the Del Norte Planning Commission, who in company with Right Rev. Monsignor O’Loughlin, placed the matter squarely up for the California State Park Commission in Eureka yesterday, Sept. 27, following the trip to Del Norte.

The north bank redwoods will be made a part of the National Tribute Grove established about a year ago, and arrangements for purchase of the desired areas will be made immediately thru the Save the Redwoods League, according to Benedict.
