To mark this international day of struggle against monoculture tree plantations, we are publishing a striking photo essay about the role of eucalyptus plantations in Portugal’s awful forest fires, as well as an opinion article in the Ecologist Magazine. In it we emphasize the importance of conserving and restoring natural forests.
La lucha sigue/the struggle continues!
September 21 is International Day against Monoculture Tree Plantations. On this day, environmental and social groups around the world call attention to the harmful effects of tree monocultures on biodiversity and local people.
