Forestry & Forest Ecosystems

EcoIntelligence forestry and forest ecosystems articles, speeches, and interviews.This section contains forestry and forest ecosystems articles, reports, interviews, book and anthology excerpts, PowerPoint presentations, and presentation transcripts. From construction materials to copy paper, trees are used to produce a huge range of products. Unsustainable logging practices, agriculture, and urban expansion all threaten our remaining intact forests. In turn, the watersheds vital to our water supply are damaged, soil erosion is accelerated, and critical habitat is reduced and fragmented for a large number of endangered species of animals and plants.

The preservation and expansion of forests, benefiting people and wildlife while at the same time extracting forest products to meet human needs, is accomplished through the implementation of sustainable forestry practices. Forestry and forest ecosystem topics include sustainable logging, temperate and tropical rainforest protection, wood as a biofuel, green certified wood and lumber, sustainable paper products, paper and wood recycling, forest habitat threats and ecosystem protection strategies, reforestation, restoration, and tree planting.
