Wed Sep 5 2007 Raid On Tree-Sit In Southern Humboldt
On September 4th, tree-sitters in the Nanning Creek tree village sent a text message saying that Pacific Lumber (Palco) climbers were raiding the tree-sits. In addition, two forest defenders were arrested on the ground for trespassing. Supporters were reportedly headed to the gate to protest against Palco's actions. Some activists have raised concerns that the company is violating the law by cutting branches during Marbled Murrelet nesting season, which ends on September 15th. Much of the supplies for the tree-sit have been taken or destroyed.

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 in southern Humboldt county. Activists began sitting in Spooner two summers ago and have set traverse lines to protect the surrounding grove of trees. A direct action forest defense base camp will take place September 6th-10th.
