An environmental group seeking more protection against illegal loggers is focusing on the recent attack of an ancient cedar tree in Canada.
Poachers attacked the 800-year-old cedar tree with power saws over a period of time at Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park, Vancouver Island, Canada, cutting through 80 percent of the base of the tree.
Because the damage to the tree was so severe, the park had to cut it down for safety reasons, according to the Wilderness Committee. The fallen tree was left at its site to decompose, but Wilderness Committee campaigner, Torrance Coste, said the poachers "have returned at their leisure without fear of consequence and cut up, hauled out and taken away the tree in sections."
