Preserving the Giants

First Federal’s Partnership with Redwood Forest Foundation

First Federal chose to plant a coastal redwood, rather than any other tree, because they are unique to our area. The Sequoia Sempervirens, the world’s tallest tree, only occurs naturally on this narrow swath of land along the Pacific coast from Monterey County to Oregon’s southwest corner.

Over 95% of America’s old-growth redwoods have been cut with devastating consequences to the forest and its inhabitants. These ancient forests contain the highest standing biomass of any forest on Earth and store incredible amounts of carbon. Coastal redwoods are among the world’s fastest-growing conifers. Redwood reforestation supports a wide variety of flora and fauna, protects salmonid spawning streams and rivers, and provides habitat for endangered species.

EStatements are a secure web-based electronic statement delivery system. EStatements provide features including on-demand access to account statements and notices so you can review them wherever and whenever you like, whether at home or on the road, which saves time. By switching to eStatements, every year the average household can avoid producing 171 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.

The Redwood Forest Foundation, Inc. (RFFI) is a private non-profit, Section 501(c)3 organization. Their vision is to establish community-based forests that provide both critical habitat for increased biodiversity and improved regional economic vitality. Their mission is to acquire, protect, restore, and manage forestlands and other related resources in the Redwood Region for the long-term benefit of the communities located there.
