Conservationists part ways on primary forest logging
Conservationists agree that keeping forests standing is a necessary part of any carbon solution. But figuring out how to balance that with the increasing global demand for wood has caused a philosophical rift. The "zero net deforestation" camp says that limited amounts of industrial logging, following best practices, can be allowed in primary forests. But the "zero deforestation" camp maintains that industrial logging presents an unacceptable risk to forests and must be prohibited.
