81 U.S. Representatives

Giant Sequoias are the largest trees on Earth, and amongst the oldest, the most senior living examples growing to ages approaching 2000 years old and over 350 feet tall. All the world's Sequoia forests are found in the Sierra Nevada mountains in eastern California.

Giant Sequoia National Monument, which contains 50% of the world's remaining Giant Sequoias, is being destroyed by the US Forest Service, which manages it. For example, in 2004-5, the Forest Service carried out fraudulent, illegal logging in the world famous "Trail of 100 Giants", the premier Sequoia tourist spot. In 2006 and 2007, the Forest Service testified in Congress falsely about that logging, trying to cover up the destruction and illegality.

Now, the Forest Service is carrying out more destructive, illegal logging and roadbuilding in other areas of the Giant Sequoia National Monument.
