Often called the lungs of the earth, forests help clean our air and regulate the climate. Forests filter our water, provide raw materials, recreation and inspiration. However, poor logging practices and planning threaten the future of our forests and wild lands.

Make the Right Choice


FSC forestry practices maintain forest habitat
Standard industrial forestry practices destroy forest habitat

The current logging method of choice by the forestry industry is clearcutting. To date, hundreds of thousands of acres have been clearcut in the Sierra Nevada and the North Coast.

The Forest Protection Commitee is working to stop this devastation by:

  1. Actively supporting Forest Ethics in their market-based campaign to Save the Sierra.

Encouraging people and green builders to buy wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

  1. Promoting good forest legislation.
