To: June Julian Subject: Re: Geez! Trees Geez! Trees. The largest tree in King County, Washington, where Seattle is located, WAS a Douglas Fir. It was 255 feet tall,26.5 feet in circumference and 575 years old. It blew down about five years ago.It was magnificent. It now lies rotting in O.O. Denny Park on the East side of Lake Washington. We are fighting hard to save the old growth habitat in the Northwest. When there are only a few left, like with this giant specimen, they crash with a puff of wind. PLEASE CONTACT PRESIDENT CLINTON AND ASK HIM TO SAVE OLD GROWTH FOREST. Why is he allowing destruction of this precious, unique and irreplacable ecosystem? Congress passed the "salvage rider" without due consideration. Clinton can hold up the cutting by administrative decree until the whole issue is debated. Please ask him to do that. Thank you for caring. Louise Stonington
