Save our heritage trees. (Dear Journal).
The Campaign for Old-Growth (CFOG), a coalition of environmental, business and religious organizations, has until the end of April to gather 420,000 valid signatures to place the Heritage Tree Preservation Act (HTPA) on California's November ballot. This statewide initiative would create a new law protecting old-growth trees that were alive in 1850, the year California became a state.
Placing the HTPA on the ballot will cost upwards of $1 million. Please join Gillian Anderson, Martin Litton, Martin Sheen, Woody Harrelson, Ed Begley, Jr. and thousands of others who are working to place this historic initiative on the ballot. Checks can be sent to CFOG [POB 17456, Los Angeles, CA 900170456] and credit card donations can be made online at www.ancienttrees.org.
