Caption: Clear-cut forestry. Helicopter hovers over an area of clear-cut forest on a hillside. The helicopter is being used to transport the fallen logs so that they can be stacked by the side of a track. Clear- cut forestry involves cutting down every tree in a certain area, rather than selecting only the largest. This method allows the soil to recover faster, and allows more rapid replanting of the forest. However, destruction of the original old growth forests and replacing them with single species plantations (monocultures) results in a massive loss of biodiversity. Photographed in the Queen Charlotte Islands, British Columbia, Canada.
