Ancient Redwood Spooner Still Threatened



Spooner is a huge, ancient redwood tree that is almost 300 feet tall and is estimated to be as much as 2,000 years old. Marked to be cut down by Pacific Lumber Company, Spooner is located in the Nanning Creek watershed, near Scotia, Ca. Activists began sitting in Spooner two summers ago and have set traverse lines to protect the surrounding grove of trees. For more information go to http://spoonerdirect.org

Looks like a fine tree in a fine environment.

Speaking of nice redwoods, you might enjoy this page I put together about some Titan redwoods:

Atlas Grove and Grove of Titans Redwoods

Definitely ancient.
