Protect Giant Sequoia National Monument

Giant Sequoia National Monument is home to half of all the giant sequoia trees left in the world, serves as vital wildlife habitat, and is a source of enjoyment and recreation for thousands of visitors each year.

Giant sequoia trees are amongst the largest and oldest living things on earth but, shockingly, the Forest Service has continued to endorse logging in this national treasure in a misguided attempt at fire protection.

The battle to protect Giant Sequoia National Monument began over one hundred years ago when John Muir first won protection for many of the most spectacular giant sequoias. In April 2000, President Bill Clinton carried on Muir's legacy by establishing Giant Sequoia National Monument. Now it is our turn to finish the job.

Send a letter to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to protect Giant Sequoia National Monument.

Protect Giant Sequoia National Monument

Dear Secretary Vilsack,

You are considering a Draft Management Plan and several alternatives that would allow logging within Giant Sequoia National Monument. Logging makes a forest drier, more flammable, and less able to adapt to changing climate.

I urge you to use your position to protect Giant Sequoia National Monument.
