Where is the compassion for the little guy, with a chainsaw?

A federal judge blocked a plan by the US government to allow commercial logging in California's Giant Sequoia National Monument, handing a victory to environmentalists who had sued to protect the ancient trees.

The giant Sequoias, evergreen redwood trees native only to California's Sierra Nevada, can live for several thousand years and grow 90 meters...
I don't want to cause an argument but the fact that they're such magnificent, awe inspiring, trees is exactly what makes them fun to cut down. Speaking as a guy who pretends to be a lumberjack, I'm pretty sure the regulations still allow me to cut down trees that are pretending to be Sequoias.
