POLAND: COURT BANS LOGGING

Poland’s Bialovieza forest is not only the best preserved lowland forest in Europe but it is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is the home to protected species and habitats as well as communities that depend on the forest for their way of life. As years of pressure from the world’s scientific community and the WWF the European Court of Justice has ruled that logging must stop immediately.
Increased commercial logging activity was shown to be the major threat to this unique environment and not as was argued, by shall we say interested parties, an infestation of Bark Beetle.
This is good news for not only the forest but also the creditability of our industry.
