Overview

So what is this “sustainable forestry” stuff? Find out by watching this video that’s “rooted” in forest science. Then you can also expand your “tree of learning” in your classroom with a combination of watching the video and taking part in classroom fun when your teacher downloads the free Lesson Guide that further explores this topic. So download the free Lesson Activity at the bottom of this page to get started!

We hear the word “sustainability” a lot, but what does it really mean? And how does “sustainability” really affect our lives?

Well, for biological systems such as a forest or a wetland, sustainability is the system’s ability to remain productive over a long time. It needs to continuously “sustain” the health of the system that can contain air, water, soil, trees, and animals. One of the things that can affect the sustainability of a system is the impact of humans consuming vital parts of the system.
