DEDICATED TO REFORESTATION
“The wise use of the earth and its resources for the lasting good of humans.”
Conservation is “the wise use of the earth and its resources for the lasting good of humans”. If we use the forest wisely, it will always supply plenty of clean water, wood products, wildlife, wild plants, beauty, and outdoor recreation. That’s because the forest is a renewable resource. Unlike non-renewable resources such as minerals, coal, and oil, the forest replaces its wood and clean water as we use them. We have already seen that we can actually improve the forest as we use it – if we do the right things, we can make a difference.
