Ashland Tree-Sitters Oppose Big Timber

Forest Defenders Take Action At Society of American Foresters Meeting at SOU

Early this morning, students and community members set two tree-sits high in the branches of a tree near the Stevenson Union at Southern Oregon University. The action serves as a symbol of opposition to the rhetoric of old-growth logging put forth at the Society of American Foresters Annual Meeting underway on campus.

With a banner proclaiming "Save the Wild Siskiyou!" strung between the tree-tops, the action sends a strong message to the timber puppets arriving in Ashland this week.
