Queen Elizabeth II is well known for planting trees in her country and has managed to plant a tree in a garden outside the NASA flight center commemorating her visit. She also planted a tree at the British embassy before leaving for London Tuesday.
I wonder if she really felt comfortable with Duhba and his Healthy Forest's Iniative, which enabled the logging of unprecedented amounts of forest including old growth that was formerly protected by environmental laws. Or if that isn't enough, if she remembers Ronny Raygun's famous statements about saving the trees.

Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan, in 1979
"If you've seen one redwood, you've seen them all."

"Trees cause more pollution than automobiles do."
"A tree is a tree. How many more do you have to look at?"
