Feds go after the Giant Sequoias
am saddened to report that the Timber Industry and the U.S. Forest Service have renewed their attack on the Giant Sequoia National Monument. This most recent threat to one of our greatest national treasures is both serious and imminent.

Nearly half the remaining Giant Sequoia groves left in the world are found in a single vulnerable wild region of California´s Sierra Nevada range. President Clinton proclaimed this area a National Monument in 2000, but now, under unrelenting industry pressure, the Forest Service may render this 5 year-old conservation victory meaningless.

The latest industry-driven "forest management" plan (or should we say "forest destruction" plan) proposed by the Forest Service will destroy this natural heritage forever by:

Opening the Giant Sequoia National Monument to commercial logging around and even in the Giant Sequoia groves;

Allowing bulldozers and other heavy logging equipment within the Monument´s fragile habitat; and

Filling up to 3,000 commercial logging trucks with timber from the National Monument every year -- that´s almost a truck every three hours!

I urge you to do the following :

Voice your outrage over the Forest Service´s industry-driven plan that jeopardizes the precious Monument, and insist that its management be transferred to the National Park Service. Sign the petition on our Web site today.
