Big Win for Big Trees

For three years, the Sierra Club has been battling the timber industry over commercial logging in the Giant Sequoia National Monument in California. In spite of the trees’ massive size and unique ecosystem, the forest service has been attempting to log the groves of giant sequoias for years. The fight is now over after an 11th hour victory when the timber industry withdrew their appeal to continue logging before the Ninth Circuit Court.

A similar battle sparked the creation of the Sierra Club when its founding father, John Muir, fought for the creation of the Giant Sequoia National Park, which sits adjacent to the endangered national monument.
