Giants in the Land
coverFrom the Redwood Forest : Ancient Trees and the Bottom Line: A Headwaters Journey by Joan Dunning, Doug Thron (Photographer).  

This journal is a tough analysis of an unscrupulous corporate raider’s methods of mining the temperate old growth redwood rain forests of Humboldt County, California. Joan and Doug’s curiosity and observations lead her and us through all the resent events and to many victims of such a mass liquidation of forest, soil, waterways and wildlife. As a resident of the area, I have read news accounts regarding the Headwaters Forest, but none have even come close to the articulate passion that Joan has focused on to repeatedly hit her mark. The natural descriptions of the remaining groves and wildlife are tender and capable of grinding the callousness from even the hardest of hearts. I find myself walking in circles of despair for all of the destruction that has already taken place. Doug’s photo journal validates every accusation made against this corporations blatant grab for money at the expense our community, our children’s future and everything sacred. Read this book, then make it required reading for all of your friends and family -- Michael Guerriero.

National Resources Defense Council
What is clearcutting?  Clearcutting means the felling and removal of all trees from a given tract of forest. One forestry expert refers to the practice as "an ecological trauma that has no precedent in nature except for a major volcanic eruption." Clearcutting can destroy an area's ecological integrity in a number of ways, including:
   
bulletthe destruction of buffer zones which reduce the severity of flooding by absorbing and holding water;
bulletthe immediate removal of forest canopy, which destroys the habitat for many rainforest-dependent insects and bacteria;
bulletthe removal of forest carbon sinks, leading to global warming through the increased human-induced and natural carbon dioxide build-up in the atmosphere;
bulletthe elimination of fish and wildlife species due to soil erosion and habitat loss;
bulletthe loss of small-scale economic opportunities, such as fruit-picking, sap extraction, and rubber tapping; and
bulletthe destruction of aesthetic values and recreational opportunities.

Intact, healthy forests play a large role in supporting all forms of life on Earth. To environmentalists, the finality of clearcutting is viewed as an ecological tragedy.

Headwaters Forest
Headwaters Forest is the largest remaining unprotected old growth redwood forest in the world. This forest complex (over 50,000 acres) is located n the Northern California coast, (near Eureka) about 300 mi north of San Francisco. Headwaters is the last remnant of an ancient redwood ecosystem that once extended unbroken from Oregon to Central California. Headwaters is critical habitat for many species, several of which are threatened or endangered. The marbled murrelet, the coho salmon, the Northern Spotted Owl, the marten, the goshawk, the Olympic salamander, and a variety of other flora and fauna live in Headwaters.

Rainforest Action Network
Since it was founded in 1985, the Rainforest Action Network has been working to protect tropical rainforests and the human rights of those living in and around those forests. From the beginning, the Network has played a key role in strengthening the worldwide rainforest conservation movement through supporting activists in tropical countries as well as organizing and mobilizing consumers and community action groups throughout the United States. Our first challenge was to bring the plight of the rainforests to public attention through education, communication, and direct action.
