""I’ve always supported renewable energy solutions, but they have to actually work and not just virtue signal at the expense of the American taxpayer," Rep. Bruce Westerman, R-Ark., told Fox News Digital. "The Forest Service turning to EVs is the perfect example of the latter.""
The Forest Service is testing electric vehicles as the agency begins preparing to electrify its entire fleet to comply with an executive order President Biden signed.

What do you think a giant Sequoia might say if they could talk? Let's find out through a series of "letters from a giant sequoia grove."
We even have Congressmen McCarthy, Westerman, and Peters talking about us! Here is a bit of what they've said: "...Giant Sequoias are wonders that must be seen to believe, and they have been symbols of American natural beauty for centuries.
Only 37,000 acres of Giant Sequoias exist in the world, all of which are in California. These iconic trees grow to be thousands of years old and are extremely fire-adapted under normal fire conditions. Their massive size and ancient history also mean they are indescribably important in providing Californians with clean air, clean water, an amazing wildlife habitat, and natural carbon storage."
Pretty impressive, eh? See ya 'round (the bark of our tree)!
Love from Brother Giant Sequoia
Watch for another letter from the grove next week on
