The Heritage Tree Resolution was killed by Democrat perfidy in the

The key idea here is that EVERY "heritage tree" is a resource. A heritage tree, as defined in SB754, is generally, a tree that was alive in 1850 with certain conditions, on "wildlands"
defined as any public or private fields that will support coniferous trees.
What is needed is an INCENTIVE for the Forest service, and for private developers and owners, to SAVE each heritage tree. Some sort of pay, for example, from forest cutting funds, which pertains to any landowner who still has a Heritage Tree. This way, people will brag about having some, and it will become a source of pride to the landowner -- and the developers will have an incentive to build around them, as SB754 requires.
