The grove, located 10 miles south of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park, is home to 483 giant sequoia redwoods, the biggest trees by volume on Earth.
These trees are not only massive, they're old. Some were alive at the time of the Trojan War.
Save the Redwoods' CEO Sam Hodder announced on the group's website that the purchase is part of the League's Redwoods and Climate Change Initiative, a key element of the group's effort to serve as stewards of California's redwood forests far into the future.

The League plans to gradually transfer the property into the federally protected Giant Sequoia National Monument.
