CIF/IFC Responds to World Resource Institute Report on Forest Cover Loss in Canada

The Canadian Institute of Forestry/Institut Forestier du Canada is speaking out against recent claims about forest loss and deforestation, sparked by a report released by the World Resource Institute that claims Canada was second in the world in terms of tree cover loss in 2013.┬áThe CIF/IFC found issue with the way tree cover loss was defined in the document, as well as the general message of the report, which leaves readers with the impression that sustainable harvesting practices, insect damage, and forest fires are causing permanent damage to our forests.┬áRead the CIF/IFC’s response here, or check out our infographic below:
