Deforestation, either to meet global demand for timber, or so land can be converted for agricultural use, is one of the biggest threats to bird biodiversity across the world. Over 60% of all bird species worldwide require forest habitats, and BirdLife estimates that figure includes some 76% of globally-threatened bird species.
Two of the worst forms that come from human unconsciousness and which destroy planet earth are greed and ignorance.The timber mafia is acting on greed and the people who buy high and good quality wood products act on ignorance.
Please use wood from fast growing and sustainable trees , bamboo or hemp.
Some of the most evil and dangerous people on earth are illegal tree cutters.In Countries where they can act undetected they carry weapons and do not hesitate to shoot and to kill everyone who comes in their way and tries to stop them from cutting trees as there is a lot of money being paid for wood that is coming from slow growing trees.If needed they shoot at scientists or whoever comes into their way.This wood is then sold to companies who use the wood for products, turning a blind eye to where the wood is coming from and that it is coming from trees who should not been cut down…
In this article below illegal tree cutters take chunks out of redwood trees and sell them on the blackmarket for a lot of money.The damage that has been done to the trees will make the trees sick and inevitably kill them.
And all to satisfy certain people’s ego that they have a piece of redwood in their home.Consudering the price that their grandchildren and great grandchildren will pay – these people and the tree cutters are insane. http://edition.cnn.com/2014/05/06/us/california-redwoods-poaching/index.html
