Global Forest Watch


Hi there again.

The natural environment and the Value of Trees in our world has helped shape the green ISP Philosophy, well here’s one for you. I know, it’s an old story, but it Really Needs Revisiting….Don’t you think?

Forests across the world are vanishing at an alarming rate, and it’s difficult for us to visualize just how serious the problem is, and where? You might have heard that something like 50 football fields’ worth of forest lost every minute, according to some studies that it true.

But this is only part of a much bigger picture.

Just where in the world are forests disappearing, and where are they coming back?

So, recently the WRI (Word Resource Institute) released a study done by the Global Forest Watch team.

It is a Fascinating Study and mapping of exactly that, where, when and how???

With the above mapping tool URL, “you will be able to zoom into a forest anywhere in the world and see where trees are being lost,” Crystal Davis, the project’s senior manager, recently said..

And it is Not All Bad News, For example, We have all heard about the Amazon and Brazilian Forrest destruction?

Well, Brazil showed the best improvement of any country, cutting annual forest loss in half between 2003-04 and 2010-11.

Interesting a Compelling Stuff…..
