Storyline

'Clearcut Nation' examines the decimation by extreme clearcutting that is occurring in the watersheds of northern California--the watersheds that support all of the life in the state. It focuses on a particular watershed as an example, but overall is about how we treat, and relate to, the natural world. It includes interviews with author Derrick Jensen, botanist Julie Kierstead Nelson, PhD fire and vegetation ecologist Dennis Odion, PhD hydrologist Tom Myers, wildlife biologist Monica Bond, and rural residents who have experienced the vast changes to the land. This film is based on 8 years of research and field work, as well as decades of life experience in the wild lands of California. Written by trees@thebattlecreekalliance.org

Important film calling attention to the destruction of California's forests
17 July 2014 | by hswriterSee all my reviews

This film calls the viewers attention to the destruction of one of the many watersheds being devastated in California.

The destruction of the forests in Northern California have a significant impact on the entire state.

The Sacramento River is fed by the watersheds in the North. When the forests in these watersheds are sprayed repeatedly with herbicides and clear cut, they leach huge amounts of herbicides and dirt into the watersheds that feed the Sacramento River.

Sierra Pacific Industries lumber company is clear-cutting and spraying herbicides over vast swatches of Northern California.

If you thought the state government was regulating this industry, you would be sadly mistaken.

It is important to educate ourselves by watching this film now, while there are still habitats and forests to be saved.
