Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Hope everything works out to save the forest. When we lose trees we lose a part of ourselves.

Wonderful ! I hope and pray that there are more people like the Lambs, the indigenous people that they enjoy and get along with, and the other people who were supportive of the vision. This is a story that has much good work, many years, miracles if you will, and many good outcomes. Thank you for sharing this story.

The fallen trees are surely a symbol of our own demise if we continue at this pace. One question...why would he feed his daughter python?
