Blog Profiles: Forest Blogs
Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. In this latest edition, we’re focusing on forest blogs. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.
I’ve been going on hikes lately and I’ve been thinking a lot about the desert environment surrounding me.
The graveyard of juniper and pine trees at the top of my favorite trail in the Cibola National Forest reveals a bleak outlook on the future of the forest. The long-term effects of the drought in the Southwest is becoming clear, and as spring sets in, I can’t help but contemplate how climate change is affecting the future of the local ecosystem.
Arbor Day is around the corner and now more than ever, I’m inspired to help increase the presence of trees and vegetation in my city. I’d like to highlight the following forest blogs for their environmental optimism, proactive environmental awareness, education and inspiration.
The National Forest Foundation’s mission is to “bring people together to restore and enhance our National Forests and Grasslands.” As a nonprofit leader in forest conservation chartered by Congress, the foundation promotes responsible recreation among Americans who want to enjoy the National Forest System. The blog includes topics on unity, restoration, engagement, sustainability and adding value.

It focuses on growing trees as a crop and the management of family forests to benefit communities and conservation throughout the U.S. You’ll find charitable stories, educational resources and current conservation events on the American Forest Foundation blog.

The WWF Global Forest Practice blog is an archive of forest-focused blog posts, stories and videos. The blog discusses global conservation, protection of forests globally and sustainability. There’s a wide variety of information on deforestation and forest degradation, which WWF understands are critical threats to the well-being of our planet, wildlife and people.

The Sustainable Forestry Initiative is a nonprofit organization with a mission “to advance sustainability through forest-focused collaboration.” This sustainability leader provides an inspirational and hopeful tone on the future of sustainable forests. The organization works with a diverse community of conservation groups, brand owners, landowners and Indigenous Peoples to help build a future of successful symbiotic relationships.
