The Forest Protection Committee works to save forests like Haupt and Jackson State and works on the reforming of
the State Board of Forestry, with respect to the harvesting of both public and private forestland. It is also concerned
with conversions of forest to other uses. Private and corporate interests are increasingly targeting coastal redwood forestland
in Northern California for clear cutting to make way for extensive new vineyard and development projects.
Once the redwood forests and their ecologies are destroyed, they will be lost forever.

How are we effective? The Forest Protection Committee is backed by 11,000 Sierra Club members strong. We are a political force.
