The Sustainable Development Goals need forests
http://www.fao.org/state-of-forests/ Forests are critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and are a vital part of our global ecosystem. They not only contribute to greener economic growth, but also provide timber, food, fuel and medicine for more than a third of the world’s population. They are our life-support system. We must manage forests sustainably as it is forests that make sustainable development possible.

Volunteer rangers protect forest from illegal loggers
(12 Aug 2017) LEADIN: The largest lowland evergreen forest in Southeast Asia is under threat from illegal logging. Local patrols are working to protect Cambodia's Prey Lang Forest with the help of smartphone technology. STORYLINE: Prey Lang is one of the last remaining lowland evergreen forests in Southeast Asia and the largest on the Indochina peninsula. Covering 3,600 square kilometres west of the Mekong River in five north-central Cambodian provinces, the forest is home to at least 20 endangered plant and 27 animal species. According to a 2014-15 survey conducted by Conservation International, recorded species include 530 plants, 60 mammals, 266 birds and 67 amphibians and reptiles. But experts claim rampant illegal logging over the last decade is decimating the forest, long-considered one of most significant ecosystems in Cambodia. In an effort to protect it, the Prey Lang Community Network (PLCN) was set up in 2007. They began patrolling the forest to document illegal logging and poaching. The grassroots organisation has around 120 regular members and is active in over half of the forest's 339 communities. Members are not paid, but volunteer their time to preserve the forest and protect their communities' livelihoods. Bun Leang is the leader of this group of volunteers in Kratie Province. "We asked for training because we wanted to know what to do. We're doing this from the heart," he says. "When we see something wrong, we mark it with GPS so others can see that what we say is true and they can know whether or not trees were cut there or not. "If someone doesn't believe us they can go around and check by it by GPS. They can know that we are serious and our information is correct. That's very important. "As well as doing GPS, we also take photographs." To cover such a wide area they use motorcycles, driving along newly-made forest roads that improve access for patrols, but conversely also make it easier for loggers to extract trees. When the terrain gets too rough, they abandon their bikes and proceed through the forest on foot. "We are very sad that they cut down this tree," says Bun. "The wood is used to make all kinds of different things, mostly produced outside of the country in Vietnam. I am appealing to the Forestry Administration to help us prevent this. This tree is very fresh, it was just cut down." A Conservation International study says around 200,000 people, mostly ethnic Kuy, live in and around Prey Lang - which means "our forest" in the Kuy language. They rely on the forest for building materials, medicine, resin and food. Bun claims most trees are cut down by impoverished locals. They're then supplied to middlemen, who in turn sell them on to foreign dealers, mostly in Vietnam. Bun says locals who cut the trees - including many expensive hardwoods, like rosewood and resin trees - earn very little, whereas the middlemen make significantly more. Forestry police officer Sgt. Jim Vichay, in charge of protecting the forest in Prailong Commune, Kratie Province, claims locals are to blame. "Local people cut the trees, we don't have big people coming here," he says. "The locals steal the trees left and right. We have lots of territory to cover and limited resources, so it's very difficult for us, but we have no big people coming here." The locations of illegally cut trees are registered using smartphone GPS technology. That data is then forwarded to local authorities. The smartphones and other gear, including two-way radios, were provided by U.S. AID in 2016, as part of a $20 million USD package aimed at protecting Prey Lang. Some 70 PLCN rangers have also received basic training from the U.S. Forest Service. "The resin trees are the most valuable," says ranger Chea Ta.

The term tree farm is also used to refer to plantations and to tree nurseries... American Tree Farm System The American Tree Farm System (ATFS) is the largest and oldest woodland certification system in America. It is internationally recognized by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification and meets strict third-party certification standards. It is one of three certification systems currently recognized in the United States (the others include the Forest Stewardship Council and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative). ATFS specializes in certifying private forests, primarily those held by individuals and families and currently certifies over 26 million acres (110,000 km²) of forestland. The ATFS Standard for Certification is owned by the American Forest Foundation, a national nonprofit organization focused on environmental education and promoting sustainable stewardship of America's woodlands. History The American Tree Farm System was established in 1941 in an effort to promote forest resources on private land, ensuring plentiful fiber production for timber and paper companies. With declining virgin saw timber available, the industry began to promote forestry practices to ensure sufficient fiber production for the future. Prior to 1941, the majority of fiber came from industrial lands. The first tract of land labeled as a Tree Farm was organized and marketed by Weyerhauser Company to help change public attitudes toward timber production and protect natural resources from fire damage. The title of "tree farm" was chosen in large part because Weyehauser Company felt that the 1940s public understood farming as crop production, and similarly tree farming was focused on producing more timber, with frequent replanting post-harvest. The early sponsors of the tree-farming movement defined it as "privately owned forest-land dedicated to the growing of forest crops for commercial purposes, protected and managed for continuous production of forest products." In the early 1940s the concept of "tree-farming" on private land was promoted by the National Lumber Manufacturers Association in an organized campaign to engage timberland owners in conservative timber production. Throughout its history, ATFS has relied on celebrity Tree Farmers to relay its message to the public. Celebrities include actor Andy Griffith, actress Andie MacDowell, former President Jimmy Carter, and Rolling Stone keyboardist Chuck Leavell. Current Since 1941, the system has shifted to focus on whole stewardship, rather than strictly fiber production. According to the Standards of Certification for ATFS, woodland owners must own 10 or more acres and have a management plan. In that management plan, woodland owners must recognize wildlife habitat, protection of water quality, threatened and endangered species, and sustainable harvest levels. The certification standard is subject to multi-stakeholder involvement in the development and revision of the standard, third-party audits, and a publicly available certification of audit summaries. As a program of the American Forest Foundation (AFF), the American Tree Farm System focuses on the long-term sustainability of America's forests in ecological and economic terms...

Tutorial on Social Responsibility Agreements (SRA)
Ghana's Constitutional provisions exclude any financial benefits to forest fringed communities and therefore, there were no incentives for communities to protect forest resources. This prompted the Forestry Commission of Ghana to explore alternative arrangements to enable forest fringed communities to have financial benefits from forest resources which led to the creation of the Social Responsibility concept. With this, timber companies pay an additional 5% of stumpage fees as SRAs to fringed communities within 5 kilometre-radius of the logging areas of timber companies. The SRA is backed by law and is not a voluntary concept. This video by Civic Response aims at training forest fringed communities about SRA; what it is, what it is not, how to negotiate a good SRA amongst others.

Amend the Forestry Act to Protect Shea Tree 14
The Shea Network Ghana is calling on government to amend the Forestry Act for the inclusion of non-Timber forest resources like the shea tree. This move, the network believes will improve the effective management and protection of the shea tree and provide a guaranteed income for women who pick the plant. Infocus today takes a look at the sheanut business and its challenge in the Northern. Noah Nash report VO The shea nut is the seed of the shea fruit that grows on the tree. It usually grows to an average height of about 15 meters and generally grows wild as an indigenous tree species in 19 countries across the Africa continent. In Ghana, it grows in almost half of the country, covering an entire area of the northern regions, with Brong-Ahafo and northern Volta sparsely covered by the shea tree. The picking and gathering of the fruits last for a period of five months from April to August every year, and engages over 90,000 women pickers in the savannah ecological zone. These fruits are buried in pits to disintegrate and produce enough heat to prevent germination. The kernels are dried further to reduce the moisture content from 40% to 7% before processing. The kernel contains about 61% fat which when extracted is edible and can serve as an important source of raw material for the Soap and Candle industry, gum and rubber industry, cocoa butter industry as well as other industrial purposes. After the oil is extracted the residue serves as an excellent fuel and can also be mixed with mud for plastering of most traditional mud huts. The processed butter is rich in Vitamin A, E and F, which protect the skin from wrinkle, and ageing. But it is estimated that for all the available sheanut in the bush, only thirty percent of the nuts are picked, with the remainder going to waste due to snake and scorpion bits that most pickers encounter during picking. Most of these women say they don't have protective clothes like hand gloves and wellington boots. "We have a lot of challenges as nut pickers since we don't have protective clothes like wallet boots, hand glove and rain coat because you nee all this to support yourself against snake, ants and scorpion bits in the bush who leave around the tree. Without this protective cloths we are unable deeper into the bush to do more picking" "During picking in the bush the snakes are not good friends at all to us women. Snakes bite us every season so the need for hand gloves and wallet boots are very vital. We don't have the resources to acquire them so we are unable to collect more nut in the bush" Despite its economic importance and benefits in the savannah ecological zone it is worrying to see many shea trees being destroyed for mango plantation, farming, firewood and charcoal activities in the northern regions. A farmer in Nyon-Guman was destroying the shea tree by setting fire around it. “I planted groundnut but it is not going so well due to the shed from the shea tree. So that is why I have set fire around the two trees. I just want the groundnut to grow well.” The news team also spotted some women groups in Bagurugu community who were engaged in shea butter processing using the shea tree as firewood. They all gave reasons for the act. "The use of the shea tree as firewood is just unfortunate since the tree was cut down by a young man in the village who was subsequently reported to the chief who warn him of the act. He told us that the tree was infested with ants in his farm that force him to cut it off. But I’m aware of the importance of the shea tree to the work i do and i have other source of wood that i use for the fire so this is just unfortunate." However, the Forestry Act 571 mandates the Forestry Commission to only regulate the utilization of forest and timber resources, manage forest reserves and see to the development of a plantation and wildlife policy. It does not make provision for the management and protection of shea trees and other economic trees such as dawadawa and baobab, which are found in non-forest parklands. As a result, several shea trees are indiscriminately cut for charcoal while others are destroyed in bush fires. According to the Shea Network Ghana, the shea industry can only be salvaged if the Forestry Act is amended. Iddi Zakaria Batitoe is the National Coordinator of the network. It is estimated that more than 600,000 women in the Northern Regions, Brong Ahafo and Northern Volta are engaged in the processing of nut into Shea butter for local consumption and export. But their leader madam Dokurugu has noted that they are faced with several challenges. Noah Nash Hoenyefia for Viasat one news

The trees are great donors,they keep giving their services whether in the form of fruits,flowers,medicines,herbs or shelter selflessly and we the gainers gain non ending things from them thanklessly and cut them for our greed of one or the other things.Trees are priceless… They never demand anything from us in return of their services, even then we don’t care.Trees work endlessly without a second’s break. They absorb the most harmful carbon dioxide gas and in return provide us the pure oxygen which is our life which indirectly helps in slowing down the global warming effect.Trees cool hot days and keep warm at nights.Deforestation is normal these days,thus creating many environmental problems such as it can lead to environmental imbalance,pollution,global warming,soil erosion etc.The forest cover of the whole world has drastically depleted over a period of time owing to the human needs and activities. It is the time to save them for our own future otherwise one day will come when it will become very difficult in the treeless polluted disease causing country. One acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen. This is enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people. -U.S. Department of Agriculture One of the most contributing factor regarding loss of tress is the consumption and the demand of paper. Special kind of tree plantations are made for the production of paper which comprises of the special kind of trees required for the pulp and paper manufacturing in turn natural forests getting replaced by these special type of plantations leading to loss of the biodiversity.As paper and pulp is the largest industrial consumer of the forest resources,they can lead to reduced water levels, required for fish and other aquatic flora and fauna along with alterations in the water temperature. These also lead to drastic climatic change. It takes just a second to waste a sheet of paper but decades for a tree to grow. What can we do: We can take an initial step to save the trees and make our earth green by First of all,we must try to recycle the paper and must avoid the paper wastage.Create awareness among people about importance of trees and the need for their conservation.

Let's Protect Our Natural Heritage
To explore the natural beauty and ecological status of Mount Taw Naw (also know as Mount Dawna), the Karen Student Network Groups (KSNG) together with a local person visited the upstream area of the mountain where local people plan to establish as a community forest. Before KNU and Burmese government reached ceasefire agreement, there were no threats to this forest. The forest was protected by KNLA soldiers in the front line. There was no significant logging in the area. However after ceasefire, more logging was done by different armed groups.

Protecting Nature, Jobs and Traditions in the Northern Forest
Upstate New York’s Tug Hill region, also known as Tug Hill Plateau, is known for its timber industry, snowfall and traditional northern forest outdoor recreational opportunities. Nestled within Tug Hill is the Town of Redfield—one of the many communities that depend on the area’s working forest landscape for economic support. In 2017, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) and The Conservation Fund protected the 3,236-acre Kendall property—located in Redfield and Orwell, a large property identified as a priority in the NYS Open Space Plan. Protection of Kendall Forest ensures ongoing timber resource production, safeguards water quality of the environmentally sensitive and economically important Salmon River and allows for continued public access to recreational opportunities, such as hunting and snowmobiling. Video production by Peregrine Productions, with additional footage provided by NYS Tug Hill Commission.
