Best Answer

The Redwood National Park is one of four parks in that area that, together, protect 45% of what's left of the remaining Coastal Redwood forests. These trees (Sequoia sempervirens) are the tallest and one of the most massive on what's left of our Earth. The park itself was created in 1968, after 90% of the original trees had been cut down.

In 1980, the United Nations declared the four-park region to be a World Heritage Site. In 1983, they declared it to be an International Biosphere Reserve.
