Tell President Biden: Protect forests to save the planet
I urge you to protect old-growth and mature trees on federal lands. These forests are one of our single most powerful solutions in the fight against climate change. Mature trees store and continue to absorb large amounts of carbon in addition to providing the public with clean drinking water, habitat for imperiled wildlife, and world-class recreational opportunities.
Thank you for your work thus far to protect old-growth trees, including your executive order directing the conservation of mature forests. Please strengthen this EO with a lasting national rule that protects mature and old-growth trees and forests across federal public lands from logging.
