Woodworking Network was gracious enough to repost our content about a new brief we had released, "A History Of Forests In The US South." This report details the rise of forest-destruction and the industrialization of our forests. While many of the facts are indeed, just context setting, the report has been critical to level-set with reporters who want to understand more about forestry in the US.
Our Southern forests are some of the most biodiverse in the world. They provide aesthetics, tourism, recreation, water filtration, waste treatment, regional climate regulation, and protection from extreme events. Yet we are rapidly degrading and losing our national Southern forests, putting untold species and benefits at risk. How did we get here?
