Product Description

Julia Butterfly HillJulia ‘Butterfly’ Hill’s remarkable and triumphant 738 day tree-sit atop the 1,000 year old, 200 foot tall redwood tree she named “Luna”, ended December 18, 1999, when she negotiated a deal to save the ancient tree with Pacific Lumber, a division of the Maxxam Corporation, who owns the land on which “Luna” stands.
