    When the Earth Charter talks about establishing "viable nature and biosphere reserves," and of managing "the use of renewable resources such as water, soil, forest products, and marine life in ways that... protect the health of ecosystems," it can seem like they're talking about only government or a big NGO's initiatives. To preserve a forest, or to plant a new one is something that would take millions of dollars and new laws and support from all kinds of international organizations, right?

    And yet when we got to Chiapas in southern Mexico, we met a woman who does all of that on her own, without her government, without any official organization and without anything remotely resembling millions of dollars - just a woman working with her family to plant trees in an area that desperately needs them, often in the face tremendous obstacles, even at risk to her life.

    Seen here is Canada's largest tree, a western redcedar named the Cheewhat Giant growing in a remote location near Cheewhat Lake within Pacific Rim National Park Reserve on southerwestern Vancouver Island. The tree measures over 6 meters (20 feet) in trunk diameter, 56 meters (182 feet) in height, and 450 cubic meters in timber volume (or 450 regular telephone poles worth of wood). Luckily the tree, discovered in 1988, is within the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, which was created in 1971.

    The video clip also shows new clearcuts and giant stumps of redcedar trees, some over 4 meters (14 feet) in diameter in the Klanawa Valley adjacent to Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and also near the Carmanah-Walbran Provincial Park, a short distance to the south.

    Satellite photos show that about 75% of the original, productive old-growth forests on Vancouver Island have been logged, including 90% of the valley bottoms where the largest trees grow and most biodiversity is found. On southern Vancouver Island, south of Barkley Sound, about 87% of the original, productive old-growth forests have been logged.
