Trees are the Answer – PragerU
We came across this informative video from PragerU which discusses the importance of trees as a renewable resource, and the common misconceptions of deforestation.
“The first misconception is that forestry, as practiced by the forest industry, is responsible for deforestation. We may think that when we buy wood from a lumberyard we are causing a bit of forest to be lost somewhere. But what we are really doing is sending a signal to the marketplace to plant more trees to produce more wood to supply the demand in the lumberyard. It is no different from any other renewable crop.”
There are so many different products that we use in our everyday lives that come from trees, from wood and paper to certain medications. Responsible forest management makes it possible to benefit from the resources forests provide while also growing more trees and maintaining healthy forests.
