If you work in and around sustainable forestry, the idea that active forestry is an engine for beneficial things has been a given for some time.
However, if you don’t deal with forestry directly, or your idea of what forestry is begins with a lumberjack yelling “Timber!” and ends with a tree hitting the ground, there’s a whole world of other benefits that you should know about.
Walk in the Woods with Us, a public education project of the National American Forest Partnership, has given an entertaining, educational and extremely well-done animated short video that packs in all of the ways that sustainable forestry produces benefits for everyone. Generating a supply of renewable wood is just the tip of the iceberg here. Watch the video. This is good news for everyone so don’t forget to share it, too.
