Monday, May 14, 2012 Please Save Our Home from clearcutting!

Clearcutting involves indiscriminately removing all trees from a given area of forest. In this case the area of land is 320 acres in Williams, OR. The petition creator fears that this action will poison the local waterways with herbicides sprayed after the clear-cut. Without the trees, erosion could seriously change the current waterways, causing water shortages and/or floods. This town is also home to dozens of organic family farms and a large herbal medicine company, Herb Pharm.

Your signature matters. This is not just some distant rainforest. This is in your own backyard (relatively speaking). Just as the body won't function without lungs, the Earth will not provide enough oxygen for humans to breathe without trees.
