UPDATE: You can still see the banner driving north from Trinidad
Green Diamond Resource Company has been continuing their destructive clear-cutting legacy, highlighted here at Strawberry Rock.
TRINIDAD, CA – Around 9:00 am today, Earth First! Humboldt dropped a large banner reading “Respect Strawberry Rock — Forest Stewardship Council and Sustainable Forestry Initiative Green-Wash Green Diamond’s Clear-Cuts.” The banner hangs 100 feet off the ground, and can be seen directly northbound on the 101 from Trinidad.
Green Diamond is the first U. S. based company that has received FSC certification while still practicing clear cut forestry methods, something that FSC is selling to the public as sustainable.
