For phascogales, tree hollows are getting harder to find. I venture into forests and study how well artificial hollows made with chainsaws can replace them.
Rather than considering the job done, Tasmania should seize opportunities including renewable energy, net-zero industrial exports and forest preservation.
Environmental groups have protested logging of British Columbia’s old-growth rainforest for three decades. But the Fairy Creek dispute could grow into another ‘War in the Woods.’
They overlook a vast body of evidence that crown fire – the most extreme type of fire behaviour in which tree canopies burn - is more likely in logged native forests.
Timber company VicForests won its appeal last week and logging is set to resume. Let’s take a look at the dramatic implications for wildlife and the law.
Our research is deeply concerning because it signals there are no quick fixes to the ongoing fire crisis afflicting Australia, which is being driven by relentless climate change.
Planting trees is a popular way to do something for nature, but putting seedlings in the ground is just the first step. And without long-term care, those sprouts may not last.
Part of an Indigenous ancestral trail was cleared by a logging company last summer, despite it being a protected cultural site under Alberta law.
Aung San Suu Kyi’s government did not have a perfect environmental record. But at least things were starting to change.
The federal government has ordered a national koala audit, but the animals are notoriously difficult to detect. But accurately counting koalas is critical to saving them.
Debating whether climate change or forest management has caused the devastating wildfires in California, Washington and Oregon is a false choice.
These trees are too important to be destroyed in the name of the forestry industry. This is why my husband Steve Pearce and I climb, explore and photograph them.
Forests must improve communities’ livelihoods to rise as a sustainable management solution
As climate change increases the frequency and scale of bushfires, our models suggest the habitats in Victoria’s Central Highlands may be hard to come by.
It’s a stunning win for a small community group that relied on crowd funding to cover legal costs.
The forestry industry wants to remove damaged logs from native forests after the bushfires. But our wildlife needs them now more than ever.
Forest thinning is a good way to lower the risk of fire, but there are potential downsides.
Researchers have uncovered what appears to be widespread logging of steep slopes in Victoria, which has the potential to damage critical water supplies.
Huge gum tree plantations shelter big koala populations, but when the trees are cut down the koalas flood into nearby habitat.
Trump may find it harder to maintain support for his escalating tariffs on China if the US economy shows further signs of weakness.
