Industrial Logging

Industrial logging opens up forests in order to extract the most economically valuable trees, leaving behind a trail of roads and destruction. Violence, corruption and illegality are often associated with the logging industry. “Sustainable management plans,” “low impact” or “selective” logging and certification schemes have only managed to cover up and perpetuate this destruction.

It is impossible to think about extraction without thinking about a vast network of accompanying infrastructure, and thus even greater deforestation and destruction.
