An excerpt from a Canopy Action Network newsletter provided a strategic analysis of the disruptive tactic of tree sitting. The history of this action was discussed in detail, including a description of the development of tree sitting techniques over time.

“As seen with the cancellations of timber sales like Watch Mountain, Harry Thomas, Kaisen Gulch, Freshwater and portions of Snog, a well timed, thoughtful strategic treesit with strong community support can change the fate of a forest. However, tree sitting is just one of many tactics. Let’s not limit ourselves. We should never forget the beauty of imagination, the wisdom of strategy and the bite of surprise. The sky’s the limit!”
