Few will argue that forests aren’t nice things, but is protecting them really all that important? Shouldn’t policymakers focus on more pressing issues, like the economy? This special report from the Boston Consulting Group explains why the threat of deforestation matters, both ecologically and economically. According to the report’s findings, even if you disregard the intangible benefits of forests, like the fond memories created during family trips to national parks or the cuteness of an endangered tree owl, the benefits provided by the world’s forests are overwhelming, and worth saving.
