I’m often asked, “Why do people cut down trees?”
The short answer is to address societal demands. Whether for fire safety, habitat management, or supply wood products, the question goes far beyond an economic explanation. Why do we cut down trees is a powerful question in an era where we speak daily of our quest for sustainability. We’ve seen bans on plastic bags or straws, developed electric cars, and certified buildings based on environmental standards. However, collectively, we haven’t carefully considered the role forestry can play in creating a sustainable society.
