Sustainable Forests

Every year, Americans use nearly 300 million trees to produce paper, shelter and furniture – that’s the equivalent of a tree measuring 100 feet high and 16 inches in diameter per person.

Worldwide, 50 acres of forest land are cleared every minute causing loss of precious wildlife habitat and massive erosion problems that will continue to affect our world for long after our own lifetimes.

One small but growing effort to combat this involves certifying sustainable forestry practices that ensure forests are planted and protected, not just cut down.

Join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network, as we hear what three experts have said about how forests are certified and how certified wood is turned into the products we use everyday.
