Tree of Gold

Filed under:General — eric @ 4:10 am

In 1997, the centuries-old only known giant golden spruce near Port Clements, British Columbia was cut down in the dead of night by Grant Hadwin. This action, labeled eco-terrorism, was his attempt to call attention to the mis-management of British Columbia’s timber resources. Days before his court appearance, he disappeared. The New Yorker tells the story. Found via Robot Wisdom.
