By the time you’ve read the headlines about your next big woodlot or farm, the forest industry is already in a frenzy.
But the hype may have already started.
It all started with the “wild” timber boom of the 1980s, which saw the introduction of high-quality, high-value wood.
But today, the industry is in a desperate race to find a way to save and maintain forests.
But it’s not just forests that are facing a forest revival.
For the first time in human history, the demand for wood is outpacing the supply.
So how can we make sure our forests are thriving, while still ensuring we’re producing sustainable forestry?
It’s a challenge that will test the ingenuity of a diverse group of experts in forestry and environmental science.
And it comes as a major new survey finds that forests in the US are in a crisis.
The findings are set to make headlines and shake up the debate about how to respond to the global forest crisis.
As part of the National Forests Assessment, a nationwide survey of forestry professionals, scientists, and engineers, a team of more than 20 forest experts from a dozen universities and national forest agencies gathered more than 4,000 data points from more than 200,000 respondents.
“The survey results show that while our forests have seen significant growth, they are not resilient,” said Robert M. Siegel, executive director of the Forest Service.
“It is not just the timber industry, but also our communities, businesses, and people that are experiencing the loss of forest.
In a country that relies on forest for its livelihoods, these changes are not a new phenomenon.
The United States has a very strong forest economy, but it is still dependent on forest as a living breathing, living resource.”
The survey, which was completed in March, found that about 85 percent of respondents believe forest ecosystems are suffering.
“What’s really striking is that while most Americans are aware that forests are being lost, most are not aware of the forest-based economy,” said Andrew J. Smith, a researcher with the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, who participated in the survey.
“They don’t see it as a loss to society or their livelihood, and they’re not necessarily aware of what the impacts are on the forest economy.”
“The forest economy is the backbone of the American economy,” added Margo E. Niehweiler, a professor at the University at Buffalo and a senior research associate in the Department of Forest Sciences at UB.
“When you look at the impact of climate change, it is going to be a long time before our forests can recover.”
The findings of the survey are part of a series of reports from the National Forestry Association, which is a trade group representing more than 1,000 forest products producers.
But their findings were the first to make public the extent of the problem.
“The survey found that many forest products are not fully recovered and are being impacted by climate change,” said John H. Miller, executive vice president and chief operating officer of the association.
“This has a real impact on our economies and our livelihoods.”
The report found that the United States is on track to become a carbon-neutral country by 2035.
The average carbon footprint of all US forests is expected to decrease by 30 percent by 2030.
That will put us in a position to absorb an additional 11.6 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions by 2036.
In 2020, our forests will be responsible for about 4.7 billion metric ton of carbon.
“While we are on track for the worst impact to be from climate change and to be the second worst carbon footprint, our ability to manage our forests is very much in jeopardy,” Miller said.
“I believe that it’s time to act.
We need to do a lot more to make sure that we have the resources to make the transition to a carbon economy.”
While the forest community is on the front lines, the landscape of the United State is also undergoing dramatic change.
The forest industry has become a critical contributor to the economy, and many of its products are used by farmers, ranchers, and other producers.
The forest industry also provides jobs for tens of thousands of Americans and has helped create the middle class.
But it’s also increasingly a source of pollution, and its sustainability is at risk.
The survey showed that while the forest trade is the most important source of jobs in the United U.S., the timber trade is second, with $1.4 trillion in annual revenues.
That’s a significant percentage of the total U.P. economy, accounting for about 10 percent of GDP.
The timber trade accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s total GDP, but is the biggest single industry that contributes to climate change.
The report also found that while forests are important to economic activity in the U.C.M.I., they’re also
