The Washington Post interviewed directors from a variety of top environmental groups, including our own Criswell Davis. Check out this excerpt:

“When you get an email that says ‘Don’t print this email’ at the bottom, that leaves people with the impression that we’re running out of trees,” Davis said. “But that’s really not the case. We actually have 50 percent more trees growing now than we did 50 years ago.”

He added: “We are all for the preservation of these old-growth forests. These trees will stand for hundreds — if not thousands — of years. They are iconic.”
