The Forest Weeps + Before & After Photos of Redwood Titans

Post by mdvaden » Mon Jan 18, 2016 8:27 pm

Earlier tonight, I started a new page about damage to redwood forest habitat. Sharing that page and photos can get the point across to people who might not realize the importance of treading carefully.

Edited the page for emphasis on the grove more so than the burl poaching which was shown before.

I've been out of the loop for the last 6 months, just wondering what specifically is going on? Is it just general increased foot traffic or something else?

Did you look at the photos at the page link?

That shows the foot traffic part. But there has been a small amount of vegetation cutting with blades to clear plants for photo ops. Carving occurred on logs, but that's not threatening. Toilet tissue was around the world's tallest, but that's more unsightly if anything. The foot traffic is by far the destroyer of vegetation.

This is a great cause to contribute to. Thanks, Mario, for putting all that time and effort into the write-up and setting up the donations page. I'm glad to see that some are taking this matter very seriously and actually doing something about it. The Grove of Titans area has been absolutely trampled and there is so much habitat damage around there. It's easy to figure out what areas will be next.
