Our mature and old-growth forests are one of this country's greatest resources. These forests provide critical habitat for wildlife, prevent erosion and flooding, protect our drinking water, and are an essential climate solution.
Forests, and especially old-growth forests, play a critical role in removing climate pollution and storing carbon — and we don't have any time to waste. Protecting forests from logging must be a cornerstone of America's climate policy, and the Sierra Club is joining with partners around the movement to push the Biden administration to enact a strong, long-lasting rule to protect mature and old-growth trees and forests and allow the recovery of old-growth forests that have been lost.
