Caption: Regenerating forest. Aerial view of a valley forest which is regenerating after being clear cut. Older, taller trees line the slopes of the valley. 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 the forest to be replanted more rapidly. 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.
