Consider this: 90 percent of the original Pacific slope native forest is gone. Over 98 percent of the primary native forest in the Great Lakes region is also gone; in New England, the Appalachians, and the deep South only a tiny fraction of 1 percent of the primary native forest remains uncut. In the U.S. south of Alaska, only in the Rocky Mountains does over half of the virgin forest remain intact. And it’s going fast.
