About 4 miles off US 101, between Kalaloch and Forks, Washington stands the National Champion western red cedar tree, Duncan Memorial Big Cedar. The goliath tree (exceeded in size only by the redwoods and giant sequoias) was saved by being No. 1; all others nearby finished last, as the surrounding clearcut testifies.
The champion, standing alone in 65 acres of stumps, is a thankful but feeble example of the restraint needed in our use of natural resources. Out of the ancient forest we have carved our own totem of debt, symbolizing what we owe the land.
