Description: It would appear that forests are finally having their day—and not a moment too soon. Around the world, trees are dying at an alarming rate, besieged by illegal logging, agricultural conversion, wildfire, and drought. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, 13 million hectares of the world’s forests are now lost to deforestation every year. In North America, climate change, insect invasions, and urban sprawl are altering and shrinking suitable forest habitat for critical wildlife species. Clearly, forests need new conservation and management strategies.
