Nobel Laureate Wangari Maathai passed away today after undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer. Maathai was the founder of the Green Belt movement in Kenya in 1977, which has planted more than 10 million trees. She was the first woman in central or eastern Africa to hold a Ph.D., the first woman head of a university department in Kenya, and the very first African woman to win the Nobel Prize in Peace.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu said: “Professor Maathai introduced the idea of women planting trees in Kenya to reduce poverty and conserve the environment,” in a statement.
“At last count, the Green Belt Movement she helped to found had assisted women to plant more than 40 million trees. She understood and acted on the inextricable links between poverty, rights and environmental sustainability. One can but marvel at her foresight and the scope of her success. She was a true African heroine,” the statement continued.
“Our condolences go to Professor Maathai’s family, to the people of Kenya, and to the countless women (and men) across Africa and the world to whom she was an inspiration,

Ara Marderosian, executive director of the environmental group Sequoia ForestKeeper, knows exactly what the Forest Service should do.
"I thought it was a great classroom for what nature does," said Marderosian, who submitted a three-page letter to the agency after visiting the grove. "It's quite a beautiful sight to see on the ground the way it is."
It's not that difficult to re-route a trail. A lot of work, yes, but there's value in leaving that tree alone.
