BUSTING THE MYTH ABOUT DEFORESTATION
Deforestation is the result of harvesting and not regenerating the forest because the land is needed for an alternative social need, such as farming, or the creation of urban centres – Toronto was once a forest!
Trees are a renewable crop. Like farmers, we harvest our crop, plant it and wait to harvest again. OFIA’s members are in the business of harvesting and regenerating trees – we are not in the business of destroying forests.
