victoria principal, treepeople

Actress/Entreprenuer Victoria Principal, best known for her role on the television series Dallas, recently helped kick off a TreePeople campaign to support reforestation in the fire-damaged Angeles National Forest. Her $25K donation is the beginning of a campaign that hopes to raise more than $250,000. All cash will be used to plant trees throughout the 144,000 acres damaged.

“I am grateful for the long relationship I’ve had with TreePeople,” said Principal. “Because of this enduring collaboration, I am confident that the funds I’m providing will be used for thoughtful restoration, to benefit the earth, and to support my California neighbors.”

    fire damaged forest, eh. last time i visited a national park (I visited n.p in Uta, California and some other states) the rangers tell me forest fires are natural and even necesary sometimes. leave it alone and within a few years new trees everywhere, all native trees and doesnt cost nothing. anyway, sounds nice, “planting trees” and it gives some people a nice job and some famous person has a nice photo op and maybe even some schoolkids will have a nice time planting the darn trees.:-)
