A Bay Area conservation group that signed a deal to purchase Alder Creek, the world’s largest privately owned giant sequoia forest, is still $3 million shy of closing the sale.

Save the Redwoods League, a non-profit based in San Francisco, has until Dec. 31 to finalize its deal for the 530-acre property, which is located in Tulare County, 10 miles south of Sequoia National Park. With $12 million of the $15.65 million needed to close on the property raised through donations from 50 states and 19 countries, the group is seizing this Giving Tuesday, an international holiday of charitable giving. Rebranding the day as Giving TreesDay, the League hopes to complete its fundraising campaign to buy the primeval home of 483 massive trees.
