The Myth of Deforestation: U.S. Forests in a Global Context

From the August 2010 Forest2Mill newsletter.

The 2010 Global Forest Resources Assessment, by the [UN] Forestry Department.., reports the United States…gained forested acres over the last five years. Annually…the U.S. gains 600,000 – 1,200,000 acres of forest.., after more than 100 years with a strong commercial forestry industry and forest products marketplace.

[T]he United States continues…to replace acres harvested and lost to forest fires, insects, disease.., development; to plant additional trees as well.
