The Mattole Forest is one of the world's largest contiguous redwood forests. Regardless of its environmental significance, the Fisher family, more well-known for their ownership of both GAP and Banana Republic, also have 440,000 acres of private property in the Mattole Forest, continue to profit off logging expeditions.
Despite strong opposition and protests against logging ventures in the Mattole Forest, the family still profits significantly through continued operations by the logging company.
