Muir Woods National Monument was the first National Monument to be created after its 295 acres of land was donated to the United States. Congressman Willaim Kent donated the land in order to protect the redwoods from the logging industry and asked that it be named after John Muir. About 1 year before Muir Woods became a National Monument %80 of the City of San Francisco had burned down and the people were needing to rebuild. Because of the need for wood, redwoods were being logged to make new homes. By donating the land of Muir Woods 800 year old Coastal Redwoods, the tallest trees in the world, were preserved for future generations.
