The Giant Sequoias of California, the most massive and magestic trees on our planet, are in real and imminent danger. Many of these living, breathing giants are as ancient as 3400 years old, measuring over 35 feet in diameter, and reaching as tall as 25 stories. In 1400 BC and they were mere seedlings; they had reached the ripe young age of 75 when King Tut was entombed and they reached their adolescence just as the Great Wall of China was being built.
These amazing works of nature’s art need our help. They need protection from impending commercial logging operations and other environmentally corrupt lobbies. You can (and should!) weigh in and voice your opinion to your House and Senate leaders at the Sierra Club’s petition site.
