"To me, the old-growth forest is as much an idea as a place. It exists not for our utility or even our pleasure, but as an ecosystem that would carry on if humans went away (and certainly would be less threatened if humans went away). This idea of forest for its own sake takes a conscious shift in our thinking, away from the belief that the world can enjoy reality only if we can experience it."
Joan Maloof and the Old-Growth Forest Network were featured recently in a Washington Post article. The piece touches on Joan's new book, the OGFN's important work, and the beautiful mystery of woodlands.
