Daryl Hannah and Ed Begley Jr. attended a press conference outside of D.A. Steve Cooley’s office to support a group of tree sitters who were jailed for trying to protect an Arcadia woodland habitat in California.

In January four protesters tried to save eleven acres, the last remaining woodland habitat in that area, from being destroyed and used as a sediment disposal site. They stayed up in the trees for 16 hours.

Julia Posin, one of the tree sitters, said, “As a last act of defense, four of us climbed into 11 plus acres of old growth forest in hopes of protecting these sacred woodlands. We watched the entire forest be decimated.”

Begley Jr. said, “I knew nothing about this move to take down the Arcadia woodlands until I saw it on the news. These people are heroes. We should stop prosecuting people who, for the greater good, have taken this heroic stand to protect those trees.”

In addition to giving support to the tree sitters, the press conference served to bring attention to other endangered habitats in California. They are hoping the events that took place in Arcadia will help to stop the destruction planned at other sites like Aliso Canyon, which is scheduled for May.
