Well, at least she died doing what she loved...being a fool.

Good for her!!! Let's hope that she has set an example for the rest of her ilk!

It wasn't the tree that killed her, it was the ground. [b]Ban the ground![/b] If it only saves one life!!!

It's not the fall that gets you, it's the sudden, catastrophic stop at the end.

So are you saying that we should ban stops too? [:)]

The medics would have gotten there sooner if they didn't have to keep pulling over to the side of the road because they were laughing so hard.

LMAO. Repeal the Law of Gravity! Newton is Wrong! I bet it sounded more like a "thud," when she hit.

Ok, so we need a petition to ban trees, gravity, falling, the ground, stopping and medics pulling over on the side of the road. Imagine how many lives this could save. We could all end up being heros and maybe win the Nobel prize or something!

Yes gravity, an unseen force that effects everyone of us everyday........ Like a giant conspiracy. Lets think about it. Lincoln's assasanation, yup gravity was there. Attack on Pearl Harbor, those bombs and torpedoes didn't drop themselves. Attack on the USS Liberty, yup gravity was there too. President Kennedy's assasination, yup gravity. This gravity stuff gets around more than "Evil Bert", It's probably at your house right now...... Running to get thicker TFB [;D][bounce]

How does that saying go?: If a tree sitter falls in the woods and nobody is around, does it make a sound? (or something to that effect)

I believe it is: If a tree sitter falls in the woods and nobody is around, is it still funny?

If a dog killed her we would destroy it... Does anyone remember the story about the logging protester that was killed when a cut tree fell on him? It was just an unfortunate accident...
Link Posted: 4/14/2002 8:16:55 AM EDT
She probably pissed off the resident porcupine. ALWAYS WEAR A SAFETY BELT IN A TREE STAND.

Maybe she pissed ON the resident porcupine who prompty climbed the tree and waited on her tree seat for her to sit down as retribution? BAN PORCUPINES! Do it for the trees!

Knowing how much she [b]loved[/b] trees.... I say they should bury her under it so she can fertalize it personally [devil]

Tree sitters live in plywood platforms attached to the upper limbs of trees slated for logging And where to the frick do they think the plywood came from?
Link Posted: 4/14/2002 10:45:24 AM EDT
space probably. delivered by UPS (Universal Plantary Shippers)

Dirt poisoning...OUTSTANDING! Hee hee... Did you notice that these jackasses make their tree sitting platforms out of PLYWOOD?? A sawmill product? What hypocrisy! There's a happy medium to this issue and people aren't seeing it. On one hand there's logging of old growth forests (which does deliver all the wood products that are generally needed) and on the other hand there's monoculture tree foresting, which delivers just one type of tree per forest, which is not the best way to maintain a stable ecology in that forest's area. The soil's nutrient balance can't be maintained under monoculture conditions. I've got one idea to use as a starting point: Quit cutting trees down just to make mulch out of them! That strikes me as a highly wasteful practice. And if more companies were to switch to electronic advertising instead of bulking up the magazines we read and stuffing our mailboxes full of junk mail, that would reduce a lot of demand. Your morning newspaper...now THERE'S an industry that needs a lot of paper and hence a lot of trees. I predict that electronic publication of the daily paper will become widespread in time. I see the tree-sitter's point, but people buy the products that come out of the forest. If they want to protect the supply, they should work on reducing the demand. I'm no tree hugger. I am a woodworker (A guitar maker, actually) among other hobbies, and I LIKE buying excellent wood for an excellent project, but I also think old forests are pretty damned cool, too. CJ

cmjohnson has an excellent point...if we stop all logging in U.S. forests, the demand will still be just as high, so we'll go and buy our lumber somewhere else (Russia, Canada, New Zealand to name a few we're currently buying from). Timber was one of the REASONS we created the National Forests. And we are currently growing forests in the U.S. faster than we are cutting them. The only problem is, clearcuts are UGLY (any AR15 owners see a similarity here?). Who cares that clearcuts regenerate faster than selective cuts? They look bad when you show them on the news. So let's ban them, right? Here's the wood you love so much, eco-freaks. [stick]

Didn't I hear something about old growth lumber from Alaska put on factory ships headed for Japan that milled them into finished lumber on the voyage?

I think the estate of woman should sue Vanport Manufacturing for letting sit in the tree without safety rails, tolets, running hot & cold water, etc.

Gravity kills... What we need is not a ban on gravity, but EDUCATION. Training courses instructing people in the use of gravity... Gravity, in the hands of a trained individual, can save lives. Maybe some sort of licensing scheme? Concealed Carry of Gravity? [;)] So what would be lesson #1? Don't fall from high places? Or don't go into those high places in the first place... Viper Out

The Gaia-worshipping pagan princess dies from a fall from the tree she worked so hard to protect? Was she doing something like this? [img]www.ottermedia.com/JuliaSkyWEB.jpg[/img] Or maybe this. [IMG]www.ottermedia.com/UpHighWEB.jpg[/IMG] Or... [IMG]www.ottermedia.com/JuliaPerchedWEB.jpg[/IMG] As the trees said after Sonny Bono ate it on the ski slopes, "There are no accidents." Someone should inform Alanis Morissette about the irony in this one. [}:D] My daddy always told me stupidity should be painful, and I think it was in this case. God Bless Texas
