Treesit extractors on Gypsy Mountain.

Eureka, CA - According to activists, four treesit extractors are raiding Gypsy Mountain as of this morning, Saturday Sept. 25. Four extractors have ascended four adjacent treesits, including the old-growth redwood, Aradia, which has been occupied since January 2002. Aradia stands above Grizzly Creek, near the death site of David "Gypsy" Chain, who was killed six years ago when a Pacific Lumber logger fell a tree in his direction. The treesitters are reportedly suspended on traverse lines between the trees high above the ground.

Activists believe one arrest has been made, and all road blockades have reportedly been cleared.

So far it is unclear if the extractors are from Schatz Tree Service, who conducted the controversial treesit extractions last year in Freshwater. Eric Schatz and four other extractors are facing lawsuits from at least two women who were forcibly removed from ancient redwoods in March and April 2003.
