  1. Can’t believe that the construction industry is addicted to redwod! Figure out something fast the lumber industry has killed 90% of the world’s biggest trees. Bet they will find an alternative then….always these decisions are too late and too little. Humans don’t learn from the past we just repeat it. Idiots usually have control over things they shouldn’t, look at Trump’s stolen election. Obviously the redwoods are way more important than another wormy politician lying his way into office but it’s the same principle…..idiots suck.
