Redwoods are being Poached
Poachers/ come at night
They cut huge slabs from the bottom of the tree
Done at night
Than they sell the slabs for thousands of dollars
A plant expert says it's like getting a cut on your knee
When that happens the scar is like a doorway for insects
They can chew away on the wood and eventually make the tree die
A lot of the tree's are thousands of years old
Could put an end to that whole long life.
Poachers sell them to wood carvers
Then they build them into tables, sculptures, or anything they want
Large pieces sell for more than $1,000
Sold all over the U.S
They are closing roads that go in to the park at night
Hard to protect 133,000 acres
People giving money to help plant more Redwoods

It is a National Forest
It is a small part of what California used to look like
Great sight for scientist's to experiment at
So our future generation can learn and see a wonderful place
