There Goes The Neighbourhood

There goes the neighbourhood.

When we clear cut old growth forests we are not just taking trees - we are clearing an entire ecosystem.

Everything that depends on the forest, that has covered the Pacific Northwest for the past 10,000 years, is out of a home.

The race is on globally. Will we retain any of our original forests, and all the creatures that live there, or will we log our forest ecosystems to death?

  1. Eventually constructors and land owners are going to want more... and more... Its a scary thought, if population keeps increasing we'll have no choice but to tear down more forests to make room for construction. Hopefully it'll never have to come to this, keep our green!
