How You Can Preserve the Natural World

Half of the world’s forests have already played their part in that story. Today, more than 11 million hectares disappear annually, accounting for 11%-20% of all human-caused carbon emissions. The act of deforestation itself accounts for a staggering 17% of all carbon emissions on the planet. There are so many ways you can help.

The Art of Saving Our Forests

Dogwood Alliance launched the SOS Campaign to Save Our Southern Forests at Jonas Gerard Gallery in Asheville. Abstract art and forest preservation may seem an unlikely pairing, but with passion and purpose as common denominators, the two make perfect sense.

Think Wood Pellets are Green? Think Again.

Recent science shows that many forms of biomass — especially from forests — produce higher carbon emissions compared to fossil fuels. In particular, a growing body of peer-reviewed, scientific studies shows that burning wood from whole trees in power plants to produce electricity can increase carbon emissions relative to fossil fuels for many decades — anywhere from 35 to 100 years.
