Save the rare sacred albino redwood from beeing sencelessly cut down

A TREE "so rare there are believed to be fewer than ten of its kind and it could be chopped down to make way for commuter trains in Northern California" according to the Associated Press. It is believed to be the largest of its kind left on the planet. It's chimera, a plant with two sets of DNA fused together. Some scientists are so concerned about this they are calling it a scientific treasure, and are seriously trying to arrange for it to be saved by removing it and replanting it. This is a petition to leave it to live where it is, as it is already a mature well-established living being in its natural habitat. It is already unique enough and it is not our right, as humans, to destroy the treasures of nature just because our petty government officials have decided for it to be destroyed for a development project that could be re-routed or re-planned. These trees are revered as sacred to Native American peoples, and anyone with a sense of the delicate balance of nature should understand the need for a much more careful handling of our interactions with other lifeforms, especially when they are so rare. Please stand up and do something to bring assistance to the protection of this tree. Please sign this petition, make calls, pray, and if need be, protest in some way. If you are a government representative, official or scientist PLEASE exert your influence to help stop this needless action. The only reason why this destruction is being planned is because of utter insensitivity, not any real need. The train plan can and must be re-routed.

  • Gabe DeSmidt I have never seen an Albino Redwood! How amazing is that! Do not cut it down!! It must be on of only a few in existence! Would that mean it is endangered and should be studied instead of cut down?
