The Gift of Life

That Keeps on Giving...
Until we kill them. 

A friend sent me these photos of the California Lumberjacks and the Redwoods. "Thousands of tree rings in these ancient trees each over 1000+ years old or even much older........such a shame -Â irreplaceable giants-Â national park treasures all gone but a few - what kind of men would do such a thing for over 100 years."

"Destroy something they cannot ever fix or replace for 2000 years? It is an evergreen, long-lived, monoecious tree living 1200-1800 years or more.... an estimated 95% or more of the original old-growth redwood forest has been cut. In 1850, old-growth redwood forest covered more than 2,000,000 acres, 8,100 acres by.. 1968, by which time nearly 90% of the original redwood trees had been logged."

SEATAC, Burien, Des Moines ...

The Flight Control Safety Corridor Project is planning on cutting thousands of our local trees. It appears they are preparing for NextGen. Not only our area, but all down the coast, from Washington to California, they will continue to remove trees to enable more arrivals. 

Couldn't they just top the trees 
Instead of destroying them?

We need our trees. Not to hug them, but to create oxygen and absorb the particles emitted from exhaust of those jets to help keep us healthy and protect us from Cancer. To learn more about the Safety Corridor Project click HERE.
