A view of the neighborhood
The Pacific Lumber Company currently owns the land where Spooner has been growing since the time of Jesus and the ancient Romans.
Logging of the grove has already begun.
It has been temporarily postponed because the grove is the nesting ground for a sea bird on the endangered species list, the marbled murrelet.

marbled murrelet
Where, exactly, the endangered birds will nest if the grove is cut after this year's nesting season is an unanswered question.
