Responsible Forestry: Moving Beyond Hugging Trees

Forests are one of the earth’s greatest gifts, providing home for a host of flora and fauna, ecosystem services like pulp and paper to create needed goods, space for recreation and relaxation, and, as the world’s lungs, a key carbon sink in the fight against global warming.

America’s Small Landowners: One Forest at a Time
