Second Tree-Sit Deployed!


At the edge of Mordor:

Lotorto 50ft up an old Eastern Hemlock, Pennsylvania's state tree
Local resident Alex Lotorto has freeclimbed an old Eastern Hemlock, Pennsylvania's state tree, to stop felling for the Tennessee Pipeline Loop 323, 30 feet from the latest stump and 150 feet up the ridge from Cummins Hill Road.

Alex when asked for statement said, "Before she passed, my mother sold homes on top of Cummins Hill. These homes were valued for their scenic views and proximity to recreation in the forest and this right of way will scar the land that makes this mountain attractive, just like the Columbia Pipeline already has. Her job as a realtor put food on the table for me and my family. I am sitting in this tree to defend the livelihoods of the people in this community. Today, I'm 50 feet closer to her and give thanks for all that she sacrificed for me."
