A stand of redwoods the size of San Francisco and home to 23 endangered species would be preserved in a $60-million plan between the state, a timber company and a Bay Area open-space group. The Save the Redwoods League hopes to buy 25,000 acres along California's North Coast from Simpson Lumber Co. and turn it over to the state. Known as the Mill Creek property, it is three times the size of the Headwaters Forest, the preservation of which attracted stiff opposition in 1998.

In a setback for the Wilson Administration, the state Board of Forestry refused Tuesday to declare an emergency and restrict the harvest of immature trees in coastal Northern California. The board, an industry-dominated panel made up entirely of appointees of former Gov. George Deukmejian, concluded that the rapid harvest of redwoods and other trees in recent years does not threaten the long-term supply of timber in California.
