Vested Interests: Industrial logging and carbon in tropical forests

I agree that a lot of tropical logging companies do not practice "sustainable forestry" but there are some that do.

To tar them all with the same brush is not fair.

I have personally invested in growing 250 Teak trees in Indonesia and they will stay in my family long after I have left this world.

Sustainable forestry means re-growing trees as and when the crop reaches certain stages in maturity and is harvested. This means the trees will be replaced by those that are logged.

I am trying to get other people to do the same. Its good for the environment and the poor farmers who live in the local area.
