Industrial Logging Today....  "forest devastation goes on as before..."

Across the U.S. and the world, the typical commercial timber harvest devastates the forest....

90-99% of the timber value leaves the local community for the profit of a distant, big corporation.

Huge Harvesting machines now replace dozens of workers and need big volumes to make the payments.

Forests are over harvested and/or high-graded. Harvested logs are smaller and poorer quality each year.

Logs and manufactured products are shipped around and round the world.

Retails markets are flooded with "cheap" manufactured wood products with a thin coat of veneer.

Manufactured products often fall apart in a few years - ending up in the landfills.

Forest Owners lose of control of their timber during a harvest.
