Globally, our forests are being mismanaged and exploited. The act of harvesting lumber is tainted by many environmentalists as destructive and quite possibly the worst thing one can do to the environment. However through sustainable forest management, harvesting tree fiber (lumber) to use for the construction of environmentally minded earth homes, paper, or furniture is the best possible way to store carbon. We (the public) desperately need to reevaluate our priorities for the environment and begin to use certified sustainable wood produce for a future without the threat of climate change.
