Dense collection of trees covering a relatively large area
Drought and hotter summers are killing Germany's spruce forests. They're a staple of the timber industry but are proving unable to cope with the consequences of climate change. Four out of five of Germany's trees show signs of sickness, according to the latest survey of the health of the country's forests. All tree species are affected. And although the last couple of years have seen more rain this hasn't been enough to compensate for the damage already done. One third of Germany is forested and trees are seen as a means of absorbing carbon emissions, as well as a source of wood for the building industry and heating. Forests are also a popular destination for recreation – hiking, biking or simply relaxing. Caroline Bayley has been to some of the country's forests to find out what's being done to rescue Germany's trees before it's too late.

Oregon manages over half a million acres of state forest land. That land is every bit as public as national forests, but historically, the state and the timber industry has treated it as just another timber plantation.But that's finally changing, and right now, the Oregon Board of Forestry is considering a Habitat Conservation plan which would set aside almost half of that land for long term stream and forest habitat conservation in the most critical areas of the forest.This would be a huge win for salmon, steelhead, and other endangered species, and provide a major source of temperate rainforest carbon sequestration when we need it the most. Unsurprisingly, the timber industry has launched an all-out misinformation campaign to stop this habitat conservation plan, even though it would still allow for logging in much of the state forest.That's where you come in. Your voice is needed, and there are many ways big and small for you to use it! If you're inspired by this conversation today, please go to forestlegacy.org to learn more and get involved.

Lasers in space may sound like something out of Star Wars, but NASA's GEDI uses lasers to study the carbon cycle.
Recently, researchers from the University of Utah and UC Santa Barbara worked together on a study to assess how climate factors can affect U.S. forests' ability to store carbon dioxide. KCSB's Elle Viefhaus sits down with co-author and UCSB Geography Professor, Anna Trugman, to discuss the study's findings.
Today Mary is talking to Ambrose and Brid, master wood turners.We talk about the craft and the philosophy behind the creative arts. Ambrose began woodturning in 1993, he is interested in craft education His belief is that stated by W.B. Yeats “Education is not filling a pail, but lighting a fire”.His articles have been published by the former International Woodturning Centre in Philadelphia USA (now Centre for Wood Art).Ambrose believes that craft is the bridge between technology and art. He believes without a deep insight into the philosophy of the craft, any maker only possesses motor and dexterity skills. For craft to have real meaning and depth and relevance, it needs to have soul.All of these facets – making, teaching, writing and demonstrating reinforce each other and help to make me a better maker, a better teacher and, most of all, a better student. He describes himself as a true student of the woodturning field.Brid began woodturning in the year 2000. She makes functional items and one-off pieces of jewellery. She likes making small pieces as she is interested in exploring the shared qualities between woodturning and jewellery and use small pieces of wood with an interesting grain. As she works she enjoys revealing the unique beauty of each piece of wood. Often hidden on the back of the piece, is some little detail put there for the wearer's enjoyment only. Most of the pieces are made from native Irish woodsRecommended booksContact Ambrose or Brid at www.ambroseandbrid.comRecommended books:Unknown CraftsmanBernard LeechThe ElementKen RobinsonWhy we make things and why does it matterPeter KornContact Mary Bermingham at email@example.com Check out Burren Nature Sanctuary at www.burrennaturesanctuary.ie Support the Nature Magic Podcast at https://www.patreon.com/naturemagic Show websitewww.naturemagic.ie

State officials on both sides of the political aisle are considering creating carbon offset programs to monetize their state lands. These initiatives give states a new revenue source by charging companies to protect state forests, in exchange for carbon offsets needed to reach their corporate net-zero commitments. But environmentalists have concerns about whether these programs are actually effective and state legislatures aren't always on board. POLITICO's Jordan Wolman breaks down how states are balancing environmental concerns, industry interests and the need to generate revenue. Plus, President Joe Biden says he will veto a House solar tariff resolution if it reaches his desk. Jordan Wolman is a sustainability reporter for POLITICO. Josh Siegel is an energy reporter for POLITICO. Nirmal Mulaikal is a POLITICO audio host-producer. Brook Hayes edited this POLITICO energy podcast.

(Part 1 of 2) In March of 2010, Farmers Insurance Agent and independent branch owner/operator Randy Stone was found shot to death in his Independence, MO office suite by his wife Teresa. The former U.S. Marine and Gulf War Veteran was prepared for anything by his very nature - so his untimely death caught close friends and family off guard. The only clue homicide detectives had to go off of was a torn up note in an office trash can near Randy’s body. A letter from his wife’s supposed secret admirer. The author of which, likely pulled the trigger. Special Thanks to the Independence, MO records division for access to the Randy Stone Homicide files.

Are you looking for the best haunted forest for a refreshing yet terrifying adventure? We are here to help. Don't forget to pack something to protect you from evil. Taking a stroll through nature can be a much needed retreat from the never ending rat race of day to day life. It's been said that hiking in general keeps your mind sharp, boosts your mood, helps increase your creativity and cements a positive relationship with the natural world around you, among a slew of other benefits. However, as is the case with anything, there is a flip side to that coin as well. Yes, there are the obvious dangers that should be taken into account; attacks by wild life, getting lost, or even taking a wrong step and getting injured in a place with little to no cell service. But what if these places harbored more mystery than predators, and rough terrain alone? Countless deaths and mysterious disappearances take place in the deep woods, far outside the roaring streets of life in the city. Today we aim to shed some light on the mystery, peek behind the dense blanket of branch and leaf, put our ear to the ground and listen to the dark history of some of the worlds most haunted forests. ——— TIME STAMPS: What Lurks Beyond The Branch & Brush - 0:00 THEME MUSIC - 1:14 Christian Taunts Listeners w/ a Jaunty Tune - 2:11 WELCOME / SOCIALS / RATE REVIEW - 2:25 Christian Receives his Just Desserts - 4:38 Haunted Forest #1: Japan's Aokigahara Forest - 6:28 Haunted Forest #2: The Hoia Baciu of Romania - 21:52 Haunted Forest #3: The Killer Woods of Germany's Black Forest - 29:26 Haunted Forest #4: Freetown-Fall River State Forest is Horribly Named - 43:10 Haunted Forest #5: The Pine Barrens of New Jersey - 39:35 A Strategically Placed Walton's Reference - 45:23 One Last Thing - 46:16 ——— If you're enjoying the show, please take a second to leave us a 5-Star Review and consider sharing the show with your friends and family!

Any discussion of climate change must consider the role of peatlands. These water-soaked ecosystems comprised of decaying mosses and other plant matter cover a mere 3 percent of the earth's surface yet store more carbon than all of the world's forests. But a debate in Canada now pits the mining of minerals essential to renewable energy against protection of critical peatlands. To learn more, WCS Wild Audio checked in with Lorna Harris, a scientist and the program lead for WCS Canada's national program for Forests, Peatlands, and Climate Change.

Research plant pathologist, Jenny Juzwik, conducts studies on diseases of trees that impact forest health and productivity. Her career-long interest and passion has been the study of interactions among microorganisms and insects associated with disease occurrence and development. One particular focus has been on the insects responsible for transmission of the oak wilt fungus, Bretziella fagacearum. In 2014 she completed research that involved elucidation of the major biotic determinants of hickory decline and investigation of the role(s) putative pathogens play in the complex. In 2010, she initiated 13 years of investigations of bark and ambrosia beetles associated with eastern black walnut in the Midwestern states and their potential as carriers of the Thousand Cankers Disease fungus, Geosmithia morbida, as well as other pathogenic fungi that may cause symptoms similar to those of thousand cankers disease.

We've delayed action on climate change for so long that scientists say eliminating greenhouse gas emissions isn't enough anymore — we also need to explore ways of removing carbon from the atmosphere. One potential method is carbon removal, which is exactly what it sounds like. Forests and wetlands can naturally do this, and engineered approaches are starting to take shape as well. And some of these new climate technology companies have been formed here in the Bay Area. How to do it fast, and safely, is a big question. But some lawmakers are hopeful that carbon removal can not only help fight climate change, but create an economic boom at the same time.

This week's episode of Around Farm Progress takes on two different topic areas. There's a look at one farmer's innovation in forest restoration that's getting some attention. We also continue our coverage of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association Cattle Industry Convention with a look at topics related to beef biosecurity.Curt Arens, Nebraska Farmer, digs in on a recent story he wrote about a farmer in western Nebraska who innovated an approach to planting trees after a wildfire. Betty Haynes, Prairie Farmer, talks with Julia Herman, NCBA beef cattle specialist and veterinarian, who discusses biosecurity, Beef Quality Assurance and the opportunities for producers.Jennifer Carrico, Wallaces Farmer, talks with Mark McCully, CEO of the American Angus Association. They discuss the electronic identification system the association is encouraging seedstock producers to use.
A rich political, social and economic history of Ireland can be told by an analysis of its landscape, and specifically through the history of its trees. In this episode, Naomi and Tim delve into the history of deforestation and its tangled associations with colonialism and agriculture, and whether the 'green' image of Ireland is all that it seems. Coming soon in part 2, we will visit a place where the ancient forest of Ireland is making a rebound: in the Irish Atlantic Rainforest restored on the Beara Peninsula by Eoghan Daltun. Patreon supporters can access a bonus debrief episode over at https://www.patreon.com/theirishpassport in which Naomi and Tim discuss a genocidal Elizabethan poet who was banished to Cork, and why a blank and featureless lawn is considered an ideal to so many...

I had Francis Livingston on the podcast today. I'd had Francis on probably three or four years ago and we talked about his life and the backstory of how he became an artist. This time, he's here for a show that we're doing, 'Forests and Beyond' and I thought I would really like to spend a little time just talking about the nuance of his place in the art world.This podcast is a two-parter. In the first part, we start to talk about modern art and how it relates to what he does today. He also speaks on how he sees his own paintings today and the way that he attacks the canvas to reveal forms and color.The second part is all about Illustration and the history of illustration, where it started, where it went, and how he was involved. then Francis goes on to talk about the future of the illustration industry, relating art directors hiring digital artists over traditional artists back then, to a.i. systems replacing digital artists in the near future.So this is Francis Livingston, part two, on Art Dealer Diaries Podcast episode 237.View 'Francis Livingston: Forests and Beyond' online:https://www.medicinemangallery.com/medicine-man-gallery-antique-native-american-western-art-collections/march-10-2023

ATELIER VISIT WITH WRITER ANN STINSON: Recently we listened back through all of our ATELIER VISIT installments and, wow, it's a series just too damn good to leave scattered and languishing in the depths of our episode archives. So, for your pleasure, dear listener, we're gathering all these episodes together and running them back to back. These aren't interviews -- they're more intimate and creative than that -- and they're all unique in form and focus. Each is an atmospheric journey into the brilliant imaginative mind, process, and working environment of an artist sure to inspire you. You're welcome! ANN STINSON is the author of the memoir The Ground at My Feet: Sustaining a Family and a Forest (Oregon State University Press, 2021), a Finalist for the 2023 Oregon Book Award. In this visit, she takes us outside, amid the trees of her family's forest in southwest Washington. In her writing, Stinson veers away from the narcissistic conventions of contemporary memoir to give us a book that is brilliantly capacious in spirit and form. Deeply personal, attuned to the big issues, and yet lastingly artful, The Ground at My Feet is an emotionally resonant family portrait and also a deliciously complex journey through time, strata, and culture. It's a nature book for the jaded urbanite, a grief report for the saccharine-allergic, and an account of transformational forest stewardship imbued with reverence and realism. Mentioned in this episode: the Cowlitz River; Mt. Rainier; the Columbia River; Douglas Firs; saw-whet owl; the stories of the forest; Richard Powers's book The Overstory; tree stumps and tree rings; the Cowlitz tribe; being alive to the possibilities of the future and the past; understanding the past anew; Thas-e-muth; Simon Plamondon; the literary utility of coat pockets; Rite in the Rain notebook; walking a trail for 50 years; Himalayan Blackberry; losing oneself to one's work; listening to the land.

Forests make up a third of all land on Earth, and they're one of our major defenses against a warming world. 45% of the carbon stored in land exists in forests.Today, our forests are struggling to adapt to human activity and a rapidly changing climate. Deforestation and wildfires continue to ravage habitats like the Amazon. In the U.S.destructive wildfires have increasingly ravaged the West. To protect these valuable ecosystems and carbon sinks, we need to radically change the way we restore, conserve and expand these landscapes.And that's exactly what Vibrant Planet CEO and co-founder Allison Wolff is doing.Allison and the Vibrant Planet team are modernizing forest conservation and restoration with a product called Land Tender, a digital platform that leverages data to help Forest Services, municipalities and tribal lands better manage their conservation and restoration efforts. Allison describes it as the operating system for forest restoration. By digitizing forest conservation and restoration, Land Tender makes it easy for municipal fire districts, conservations districts, nonprofits, and NGOs to coordinate and plan with each other.Different interventions like removing vegetation and prescribed burns can be mapped over time using machine learning and AI to adjust treatments accordingly.Emily spoke with Allison about the process of merging nature-based climate solutions with cutting edge technology, how she developed Land Tender, and Allison's long career pushing big tech companies to make positive choices for people and the planet.Watt It Takes is brought to you by Shell Ventures.

Today on the Mushroom Hour Podcast we are honored to be joined by Geoff Williams PhD, International Sentinel Network Coordinator for the US Forest Service. Geoff studies the social dimensions and microbial ecology of host range expansions and geographic range expansions of forest trees, their fungal pathogens, and their insect herbivores. Geoff just moved to Oregon from West Lafayette, Indiana where he studied the role of the microbiome in Thousand Cankers Disease of Eastern black walnut in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Purdue University. Prior to that he has worked and lived in Idaho, Arizona, Mexico, and Chicago, originally hailing Ann Arbor, Michigan. In his current position he is gathering information on forest insects and pathogens across the world. The ultimate goal is to build networks of cooperation and information exchange with international collaborators to help protect native forest tree species in the US and all over the world from the next highly destructive or devastating insect or fungal pathogen that could be introduced through trade and travel.

Minnesota's northern forests are changing rapidly. Warmer temperatures and shifting precipitation patterns are causing a decline in the growth and survival rates of our trees, particularly among spruce and fir. And with life spans in the decades, the swift changes are creating trouble. Peter Reich with the University of Michigan has been keeping track of our northern forests and he discussed the future of our forests with Climate Cast host Paul Huttner.
A study by researchers at Saint Louis University has found that elephants play a key role in creating forests that store large amounts of atmospheric carbon and in maintaining the biodiversity of forests in Africa. Since elephants are endangered, their status represents a significant threat to an ecosystem that is very important to the Earth's […]
We need to act fast to address the three interrelated crises facing our planet—climate change, biodiversity loss, and the threat of zoonotic pandemics. We must not only protect the last of the wild, but also actively restore wildlife and wild places. WCS Wild Audio recently spoke with John Lotspeich, Executive Director of Trillion Trees— a conservation partnership attempting to meet the scale needed at this critical time.To learn more about Trillion Trees, read their 2022 Impact Report.
Sustainable supply chains can address the key drivers of forest and biodiversity loss in the agriculture and forestry sectors, fueling biodiversity conservation and responsible sourcing of commodities like palm oil, soy, timber, and much more. Episode 71 introduces Gen Z for the Trees, a powerful youth movement aiming for net zero deforestation by 2030 using supply chain mapping + modeling techniques, GIS, and environmental science knowledge to uncover what's REALLY happening in some of the biggest brands' supply chains...and all while attending university full time. Deforestation in the supply chain is bad for several reasons. First and foremost, deforestation has a significant negative impact on the environment, leading to loss of biodiversity, soil erosion, and carbon emissions. Deforestation also contributes to climate change by reducing the number of trees that can absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. In addition to the environmental impact, deforestation can also have negative social and economic consequences. Forests are often home to indigenous and local communities who rely on the forest for their livelihoods, including hunting, fishing, and gathering of forest products. Deforestation can displace these communities and disrupt their way of life. From a business perspective, deforestation can also pose a risk to companies that source products from areas affected by deforestation, such as palm oil, soy, beef, and timber. Consumers are increasingly aware of the impact of deforestation and may choose to avoid products that contribute to it. In addition, regulatory frameworks aimed at reducing deforestation are being put in place in many countries, and companies that fail to comply with these regulations may face legal and reputational risks. As part of the Rainforest Partnership, the goal of Gen Z for the Trees is to inform the world about sustainable living, stakeholders in the rainforest, and current grassroots efforts to mitigate climate change. They also commit to promoting the work of indigenous rainforest communities while celebrating these communities' deep and unique understanding of the rainforest. Gen Z is the generation of change: many of these changes, like climate change, were set in place generations ago but threaten our future on this planet. As temperatures climb, sea levels rise, and natural disasters intensify each year, Gen Z must grapple with the inevitability of change. As the most connected, diverse, and largest generation in the history of the world, Gen Z is driven by immediate action and near instant togetherness. Gen Z makes up 40% of consumers both in the United States and globally. By 2026, Gen Z will be over 40% of the workforce with influence far-reaching, they are poised to create a more sustainable future.

As the world pursues reforestation on an expanding scale, a recurring question is: how do we pay for it? One emerging solution is to grow and harvest timber on the same land where reforestation is happening, as exemplified in Brazil's Atlantic Forest. Another approach is to grow timber trees and natural forests on separate plots of land, with a portion of the profits from timber harvests supporting the reforestation. However, some experts worry that relying too much on timber revenues could harm ecosystems and existing forests, resulting in additional harvesting. Can we balance the need for funding with the need to preserve native ecosystems? On this episode, listen to the popular Mongabay article by Gianluca Cerullo that discusses all this: Dollars and chainsaws: Can timber production help fund global reforestation?

Kelp forests have a number of benefits to the coastal oceans: They provide a habitat for a diverse set of species; they provide food for species; and, they take up carbon dioxide more than land trees. But kelp forests are at risk as a predator that used to be a problem is becoming more of a problem and eating live kelp. We need healthy kelp forests for all of their benefits including reducing climate change. Therefore, it is crucial that we discuss what will help protect them.

Our guests today are, Diego Saez-Gil of Pachama and Sam Gill of Sylvera, and we're talking about forestry carbon offsets.Forestry carbon offsets were designed as a financial tool to provide an economic incentive for landowners to make alternative decisions, to pay landowners to keep their forests intact in the case of deforestation avoidance credits or to reforest previously damaged land in the case of reforestation credits. The money for this economic incentive comes from large actors who can then take "credit" for their action and apply it against the carbon footprint of their own organization. This is a carbon offset. In the simplest terms, if part of a company cannot decarbonize quickly, but still aims to achieve net-zero emissions, they can pay a forest landowner to preserve their forest and take an agreed upon amount of carbon off their balance sheet accordingly. And it's a relatively new thing. Forestry carbon offsets have become a popular product over the last decade, and like any maturing industry, it has challenges.Diego and Sam are here to walk us through why forests matter, the history of offsets and how they work, some of the challenges highlighted recently, and what they think the path forward looks like. Regardless of what you think of carbon offsets, this is a crucial problem to solve. Without an economic incentive to maintain and regrow the world's forests, any thought of avoiding the worst effects of climate change is out the window. In this episode, we cover: Diego's background and intro to PachamaSam's experience and an overview of SylveraForests in the world today and why they matter for climateRisk of deforestation and the Amazon becoming a self-reinforcing negative feedback loopHow the story of biodiversity has changed from a forestry perspectiveEconomic levers at play with regard to forests, including reforestation and afforestationThe link between forest credits, offsets, and carbon marketsProblems associated with deforestation credits and managing illegal activityThe voluntary market for deforestation credits, who's buying and whyHow deforestation credits are measured now and historicallyMeasuring reforestation and afforestation projectsDiego and Sam's thoughts on a recent article in The Guardian claiming that most forest carbon offsets are worthlessHow Sylvera assesses forest projects and its reaction to The Guardian articlePachama's approach to creating synthetic baselines and validating the uncertainty of predictionsOvercoming challenges through collaborationPredictions for the future of forest carbon marketsGet connected: Cody Simms Twitter / LinkedInDiego Twitter / LinkedInSam Twitter / LinkedIn MCJ Podcast / Collective*You can also reach us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, where we encourage you to share your feedback on episodes and suggestions for future topics or guests.Episode recorded on January 31, 2023
