Pennsylvania's Forests Are Changing
Here's Why You Should Care
Pennsylvania remains one of the most forested states in the nation. It includes some of the most intact and bountiful hardwood forest lands in the temperate world. But, according to the Pinchot Institute for Conservation, we are slowly losing and carving up these wonderful forests.
For the first time in a century, the forest lost to clearing is not being replaced with new forest growth.
Visit www.pinchot.org to read the recently released special report "Pennsylvania’s Forests How They are Changing and Why We Should Care," by Will Price and Eric Sprague.
The report contains data and information compiled by many organizations, data that represents a snapshot in time, and an earnest effort by the Pinchot Institute to interpret what this data means.
The Pinchot Institute hopes this report is both a resource and catalyst for Pennsylvanians—spurring action among government agencies, environmental organizations, and other groups that recognize forest conservation as a key strategy for improving the region’s environment, economy, and quality of life.
