Redwood National and State Parks is being robbed! Burl poaching is on the rise and measures are being taken to try and prevent further damage to the grand old trees of Redwood National and State Parks.

Wood poaching involves cutting of burl and bunion growths off of both live and dead tree bases, felling of live trees to access burls/bunions from higher up the stem, and cutting up and slabbing downed logs for both ornamental furniture and construction materials.

This uncontrolled and illegitimate harvesting is impacting one of the most sensitive resources in Redwood National and State Parks (RNSP), a designated World Heritage and International Biosphere Reserve, that not only includes injury to live trees that are up to 2000 years old, but also includes related impacts to scenic qualities, potential take of endangered species, etc.

 

If you would like to help us combat this issue, please consider making a donation to RPA today. Donations will go toward technology to further deter burl theft. Every donation of $5.00 or more will receive a WPA style Redwood National and State Parks window sticker.
