It’s true what they say about San Francisco — it leaves an imprint on your heart. If you’ve never been, it’s hard to imagine such a diverse landscape. The bay waters, the skyline, the bridges, the forests. The natural beauty is an American treasure. Ten years ago when my family moved to Mill Valley, a village set amongst magnificent old-growth redwood forests near San Francisco, we never imagined that we would bear witness to the destruction of these centennial giants rooted deep in the history of this land.
