Tell the U.S. Senate: Don't let them cut down our oldest forests
I urge you to keep our oldest forests off the chopping block. Please vote 'no' on the Promoting Effective Forest Management Act of 2023, which calls for chopping down our mature and old-growth forests.
Mature and old-growth trees provide critical wildlife habitat and keep huge amounts of climate-warming carbon from being released into the atmosphere.
We need our old-growth and mature forests to stay standing for generations to come, but this legislation threatens to level towering giants and destroy many of our nation's oldest trees. Don't let them cut down our oldest forests.
