Last of the Last Unentered Ancient Forests. Climate Change & Rainbow Ridge
The Big Picture: The Carbon Sequestering Power of Douglas Fir & the New Reality of Earth in the Midst of Sixth Mass Extinction
In these times of uncertainty and potential climate disaster, it is the responsibility of every human and community to protect, restore and provide Stewardship for their own part of the planet.
Studies have revealed that the forests of the Pacific Northwest are capable of storing carbon more efficiently than the “Lungs of the Planet” in the Amazon rainforests. The Rainbow Project has as a primary purpose, the protection of the remaining ancient trees on these ridges, and limiting the extraction of younger trees to the sole purpose of facilitating recovery.
Protecting these coastal Douglas-Fir trees will also provide a vital buffer for the neighboring giant redwoods of the Eel River valley, also powerful carbon fixers, and now noticeably climate stressed.
