EF! Humboldt is announcing our support and assistance to the tree-sitters in Trinidad.
After a break from direct action following our successful four year campaign in the McKay Tract, we are ready to join our fellow community members in the defense of the forest around Strawberry Rock.
Forest practices we are opposed to:
Clear-cut logging by any name
Logging on unstable slopes
Forest practices we support:
Preservation of Old-growth trees and mature forest habitat
Protection of rare and endangered species
Forestry that is both ecologically and economically sustainable
Selective logging that removes wood from the forest at a slower rate than which it grows
