While many people moan and groan about the tropical countries cutting down the rain forests and hurting the environment with deforestation, Brazil and other tropical countries aren’t the biggest criminals when it comes to killing off forests. Global Forest Watch has recently partnered with other interest groups to measure the changes in tree cover over the years. They found Russia and Canada account for 34% of global tree loss. Is this because we value their forest less than the exotic, diverse rain-forests? Or is it just because these two countries are some of the biggest in the work that it only makes sense they cut down more tree? Either way, one problem is clear, all countries, not just tropical ones, should consider how many trees they cut down.
