Australia has already lost so many wonderful mammal species. Do we want the southern greater glider to suffer the same fate?
Integrating local and Indigenous knowledge into conservation can help to support diverse diets without compromising biodiversity goals.
President Biden has called for protecting large, old trees from logging, but many of them could be cut while the regulatory process grinds forward.
Pine grows faster and sequesters more carbon. But native forest is better for biodiversity in the long run. Transitioning between the two offers a win-win solution.
How many years you reuse a fake holiday tree matters. So does what happens to a live tree when you’ve packed up the ornaments.
Australia’s latest climate change statement shows we have little hope of reaching net zero emissions by 2050. There’s good news on the 2030 target, but then what?
We argue for an orderly transition from ‘timber mining’ to managed forestry in the tropics. Here’s a five-step plan to improve forest fates, with benefits for the climate, biodiversity and people.
Satellite data shows wildfires are destroying large areas of timber-producing forests around the world. These fires are becoming more destructive with each passing year.
Tracking both the amount of carbon and the time that it remains stored is key to unlocking the potential of nature-based carbon storage as a climate mitigation strategy.
Forest thinning and controlled burns take away fuel for fires, but the US can only treat so many acres. Which ones to choose?
Tasmania’s forestry wars aren’t over, if the uproar over the felling of a large mountain ash is anything to go by.
Plantations of exotic trees from the mid-19th century onwards devastated Indian ecosystems.
The important role living roots play for sustaining life belowground should prompt us to rethink forest management.
Is it possible to measure sustainable development? Can we go beyond merely embracing virtuous principles and put the concept into use?
A longer growing season for trees, due to global warming, does not necessarily lead to an increase in wood production.
The remoteness and small size of old-growth boreal trees should not make us forget their high ecological importance and the many threats they face.
Victoria’s native forests will be free from logging by the end of the year. That’s big news for our threatened species and fragmented forests
Logging over the past two centuries has had a major impact on Québec’s forests. The traces it has left will guide the adoption of sustainable forest management techniques.
The rapidly changing climate presents many challenges for the sustainability of forest ecosystems. Assisting the migration of trees is a tool to address these challenges.
Protecting old and mature trees is the simplest and least expensive way to pull carbon out of the atmosphere – but proposed logging projects threaten mature stands across the US.
