About Julia Butterfly Hill:
Julia Butterfly Hill brought international attention to the plight of the world’s last remaining ancient forests in 1997 when she climbed up 180 feet into a 1000-year-old redwood tree. Her historic 738-day crusade against environmental destruction caused by clear-cutting ancient redwoods culminated with a negotiated agreement that provided permanent protection for the tree – Luna - and a nearly 3-acre buffer-zone. She is author of the national best seller The Legacy of Luna and One Makes The Difference. For the past 7 years, Julia has toured the world giving presentations at universities, conferences, concerts and community events about each person’s power to change the world. http://www.whatsyourtree.org
