Save the Sequoias: Bring Real Protection to the Giant Sequoia National Monument

There is a new Congress, but bad ideas never die. This summer a House of Representatives subcommittee took up legislation to allow clear- cutting in Giant Sequoia National Monument. Now backers of this bill are going to try to push it through before Congress' holiday recess.

On April 15, 2000, President Bill Clinton signed a proclamation creating the 328,000-acre Giant Sequoia National Monument. More than half of all the giant sequoia groves in the world are in this monument, with most of the remainder found in the adjacent Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks.

Passage of The Giant Sequoia National Monument Transition Act of 2006
(HR 5760) would allow the forest service to proceed with commercial logging projects, ignoring the federal court ruling against such projects, a ruling based on potential harm to the landscape and the rare wildlife that depends on it.

Logging these majestic trees will not only destroy an international treasure, it will ravage the homes of hundreds of animal species. Most devastated will be the Pacific Fisher, a small mammal specifically designated for protection within the Monument.

When walking among these giants -- sequoias are the largest living things on Earth -- the importance of their protection becomes clear, and the idea of logging seems, at best, undignified.
