Planting new trees

I'm planning on planting over a thousand california coastal redwood trees in the Olympic Peninsula for future generations. Do you guys have any tips to ensure they survive for at lest the 50+ years? I'm an amateur gardener.

    contact your local agriculture university and ask them, they'll tell you everything and if allowed even sell you the seedlings/seed for cheap.
    doing it illegally will backfire in every possible way

    From an ecological standpoint, I find this “imma plant a million kajillion TREES” fad….troubling, to put it mildly. The same people who do this are the people who you’ll find are fully “up to date” on their COVID boosters. They don’t trust nature to take its course. They don’t know that you can’t just plant trees and “hope that they grow up big and strong.” A forest is a complex system, and trees are just one part of it. Ignoring the rest of the ecosystem, including the animals, is just asking for trouble in some way, either setting up the trees to be susceptible to parasites or pathogens, or to wildfire.

    Just leave the damn forest alone.

    do they even grow in northern Washington? I feel like the heavy rain and cold would just kill them

    based. All I can suggest you is to mulch and weed around them if you can until the saplings are taller than the average grass in your area

    Make sure you address the soil microbiome.

    whatever you do, don't climb the tree you plant

      I always wondered if you could sculpt a tree as it was growing and turn it into a tree house.
      Like that guy who braids saplings together, or forcing them to grow around objects to make them look like living sculptures. Or in the olden times where they'd force trees to grow in a certain way so they could be more easily used for ox bows and parts of wooden hulls.

        You probably "can" but it's going to take long. And be fucked when the tree continuesbto grow.

          Make it a generational project or something.

            Good luck trying to start generational anything in today's age.
            Would be rad, though.

    Oh, and plant them in wooded or wooded until recently areas. Don't try to turn a fucking plain into a forest, please.

    First, don't plant only kne kind of tree.
    Then, only plant native shit. (I don't know california flora, so youmre on your own)
    And basically don't make a tree field.
    Also be careful of the soil, surrounding plants (they compete so you have to be careful, some trees actually poison the soil for everyone else, that kind of shit).
    And if you plant them young check often on them they don't get eaten.

    That's about it, I guess.

      The west coast was famous for redwood trees. Prior to settlement, they completely dominated the landscape. He could plant 10,000 trees and it wouldn't be anywhere close to what has been lost in the Olympic Peninsula.

          I figured (it's not exactly a hot world tourism spot however it's something that tons of us that grew up on the west US coast know), hence the quick knowledge dump. But yeah, it got so bad it is now a criminal offense to cut down most of these trees.

            If it's illegal to cut them, isn't it too to collect seed or seedlings? Can you buy them somewhere? Assuming there are non wild "farms" for them of it's highly regulated.
