Silver Estates Logging Plan Update

Cal Fire approved the Silver Estates logging plan in spite of its patent illegality.  Consequently the Guerneville Forest Coalition (fiscally sponsored by Forest Unlimited) filed suit in Superior Court and received a Temporary Restraining Order preventing logging until the merits of the case could be heard.  The Silver Estate logging plan is adjacent to the Russian River and near the town of Guerneville and home to the tallest redwood in Sonoma County. Faced with a lawsuit that could drag on for months,  the owner of the parcel decided to Sell to the Save the Redwoods League!  The League has plans to transfer ownership to the County.  The Guerneville Forest Coalition, is still involved, negotiating with SRL on the parameters of a conservation easment.  Thank you to all of you who supported this effort with your time and money!
