MA Ancient Forest To Be Cut Within Week (english)
14 Jul 2003
The ruin of the majestic Wachusett Mountain is now eminent. A Supreme Judicial Court today overturned the previous victories that protected Wachusett from the axe of the Wachusett Mountain Ski Area who have been fighting for almost a decade for the go-ahead to clear cut 12+ acres of mature red oak forests to creat more ski runs. The trees marked for death serve also as a buffer zone to the states largest stand of ancient forests.

This is a call to all that have help with this campaign in the past and all that want to help now. We need a mobilization of people who are willing to use non-violent tactics to stand in the way of the developers on the ground. I CAN NOT STREES THE URGENCY OF THIS. A forest that has been growing for almost two hundred years will be gone in two days of cutting. We are unsure as to when cutting can start, but it will be soon (within a day or two).

I know that this e-mail is asking a lot, but if you or anyone you know can help, please contact - takeaction2001 (at)
