A 29,000 acre section of redwoods is in the hands of mediators in a long-overdue disposition of the fate of these 2,000-year-old trees. Protestors lived in these trees during the 1990s to attempt to prevent their harvest. See more here.
Why do we still not recognize these trees as vital to our physical, mental, and spiritual well-being? I don't understand why that is still debated. It seems we should be past that, by now.
