“We are in danger of losing the magnificent working forests in America as properties continue to change hands according to economic and environmental pressures. It is time we focused on keeping working forests as forests, because of the role they play in preserving the green infrastructure of the nation.”
~ Lawrence Selzer – President and CEO, The Conservation Fund
Land provides social, recreational and financial benefits. It can generate revenue for owners in many ways – one of the most environmentally friendly is by growing trees. Because 70 percent of U.S. timberland is privately owned, it is imperative that both the social and economic incentives to continue growing trees outweigh the financial rewards of sacrificing forests to development. Print (paper more specifically!) grows trees.
