An aerial view of the Maine North Woods, the Brazilian rainforests or the ancient forests of the Pacific Northwest reveal gruesome wastelands where once there were thriving forest ecosystems. Diverse forests have been replaced by the planted rows of tree plantations, to be harvested rather than nurtured as a living system. We continue to clearcut our forests at a dizzying rate, seemingly oblivious to the economic and environmental reality that soon we will have no trees left to cut. Logging on both public and private lands is having a disastrous effect on many forest-dependent species. Groups like those that follow are working to end this madness; to stop the destruction of our forest lands before it's too late.
Grants given to groups in this category totaled $213,200.
