After seven years, the snaz rests.
From now on, I’ll focus on TreeFight. The snaz website, twitter, facebook, tumblr, and instagram accounts will no longer be updated.
Thank you for following the snaz, however long or briefly you’ve been here. On the snaz I learned digital publishing, sharpened my devotion to my home, and shared a ridiculously fortunate life. I hope the snaz was fun for you, too. Now it’s time to apply what I’ve learned to what I know:
Temperatures are changing quickly, and so are our forests. As we’ve seen from the rapid devastation of whitebark and lodgepole forests across western North America, tree populations are highly sensitive to small changes, and big changes are ahead. This worries me for our arboreal friends. Trees have always awed me with their complexity and longevity, they anchor the wilds I love, they give me food, oxygen, a home, and coffee. How can I not fight for them?
In the summer of 2010, TreeFight began as an experiment in the protection of whitebark, and two years later has evolved to include restoration, research, and education. We’ve started to grow some roots, and understand our function. Now, like a sapling, we need to focus our energy, find the sky, and head there.
To come along, please hop into one of the currents of TreeFight’s stream. I promise a minimum of scary headlines; I think we can all agree, they’re not working. Instead, expect smart solutions, cool stuff, and awesome people.
Stay tuned. The fight has just begun.
