100 Percent Protection of a Forest


A SPECIES' FOREST is neither (1) biodiversity nor (2) sustainability. Those are resource words. What? Yes, I can say this because these words (biodiversity and sustainability) have been gladly adopted by resource extraction industries. They are interpretive and that make these words useless.


Biodiversity is not equilibrium. Sustainability is not equilibrium. EQUILIBRIUM and SPECIES' FOREST will never be used by the forest product extraction industry, because these terms are either 100 percent or nothing at all and resource people do not want to defend a forest 100 percent.

Growing Old Together - As They Should


Growing Old Together - As They Should

The species' forest is the healthiest forest. No one has denied that. Environmentalists believe in the species' forest. This has not changed. No forest can be selectively logged and be beneficial to the climate and the community, especially State forests (US). A species' forest is of, by and for all the native plants, animals, fungi and soil microbes that occupy or have occupied that place. It is their forest. http://speciesforest.blogspot.com/  Nature conservation is a social movement and environmentalists will not give in to the lies of the stakeholders. A stakeholder is someone who has a money or property interest in some action. Environmentalists are not stakeholders; they are defenders of the Species' Planet. Those who give up, give in or agree to false win win solutions are not serving the natural landscape. Forget them; the work now falls to others to be the environmentalists of the 21st century.

Natural Landscape Unfolds as it Should

Here, this 2014, the Natural Landscape Unfolds as it Should.



This image was taken in a New England forest (US).
In the deep woods rotten trees fall over and living trees are toppled by winds.  A tree fell onto a wild grapevine causing the vine to be pulled down a bit. When the fallen trunk of the tree rotted away over time it broke into pieces and freed this grapevine. This massive vine now has a saddle shape  and continues to climb more than twenty feet into the canopy.  In a species' forest people always let dead trees fall as would be. In this image you can see the sections of rotten tree under the big vine. Wild grapevines like this are found throughout the northern United States. Palmer's Field Guide says that many are native, some were imported by early homesteaders and many are hybrids. Like the non-native honey bee none of these vines appear to be invasive.

This spring of 2014 find a species forest near you and do what you can to protect it. Encourage no human activities; people walking only, no trails and no AUHM (animals under human management) both wild and domesticated.

No person really owns a forest. They may control it, but the real occupant "owners" are all the other native species of plants, animals, fungi and soil microbes. Whether you have control of a species' forest or not you can at least give it a name. All acres can be returned. Don't let a forester, a wetland specialist or anyone tell you that a forest cannot be returned. A paved road can be returned. In the Species List Forest we have returned a paved town road which you can see through the trees as you drive by.

If you believe in the species' forest you will never cut it down.



If you believe in the species' forest you will never cut it down. Most foresters do not believe in the species' forest. During this 21st century they will come to believe. Better late than never.

Any species' forest is harmed by people. Colder climate forest and tropical forest alike.

We must set aside many acres of species' forest, species' grasslands, species' deserts, species' mountains and oceans.

To save the Species' Planet
we must do it NOW!

A species' forest is like a child. You might give a child away for a better home, but you would never sell your child.
