The clock is ticking for the Biden administration to make good on its Earth Day 2022 executive order promising to protect mature and old-growth forests on federal lands, and it's time to ratchet up the pressure!
On Apr 22, 2022, President Biden recognized the importance of our mature and old-growth forests on federal lands as an essential climate solution, and directed federal agencies to define, inventory, and develop policies to protect them. Despite this executive order, the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management continue to log these essential climate-saving forests at alarming rates.
As a part of the Climate Forests Campaign, we are trying to send at 500,000 emails to President Biden by Earth Day 2023 on April 22nd urging him and his administration to realize the promise of the executive order by creating a strong, lasting national rule that protects mature and old-growth trees and forests across federal public lands from logging, to protect biodiversity and mitigate climate change.
Please take action today on behalf of mature and old-growth forests on U.S. federal lands.
