CENTURY
OLD TREES

Large trees support entire ecosystems of their own, offering niche habitats for wildlife, and playing a disproportionate role in carbon absorption.  Micro-habitat diversity has been demonstrated to increase with increasing tree diameter.  Bark structures such as bark pockets, bark pockets with decay, and bowls in the bark of old growth trees can support a diverse array of fungi, lichens, and invertebrates.

Dear Mr. Wisch,

I am writing to urge you to cancel the Point Blank timber sale.  This century-old forest represents an irreplaceable part of our natural heritage. Many of the dominant trees are close to four feet in diameter and 200 feet tall. Forests such as this have virtually disappeared from Southwestern Washington. What little remains is on state trust lands managed by DNR. 

These forests are not renewable resources. They play a critical role in mitigating the impacts of climate change, and preserving genetic diversity and biological legacies of the old growth forests that once dominated the Pacific Northwest, and should be protected.

Thank you for listening.
