The Legacy of Luna by Julia Butterfly Hill

I have always wanted to read this book, so when I came across a used copy at the Bodhi Tree last weekend I knew this was the time. This book tells the story of Hill's two years spent living in Luna, a redwood tree in the Northern California forest, as an act of protest to protect the tree from being cut down. Hill lived on a small platform where she became incredibly efficient with sleeping, eating, washing, working, and having visitors. Her story is an inspiring one.

It sounds interesting. Was the tree cut down?

Hill was able to secure a deal with Pacific Lumber to protect the tree and the surrounding area. Unfortunately, there was a severe act of vandalism with a chainsaw after her descent from the tree, but the tree was not cut down. The tree is still standing with some reinforcements and experiencing new growth. The tree is thought to be 1,000 years old.
