Current threat: Illegal logging
Protecting a forest from illegal logging is about ensuring a responsible timber market. Plus, it also safeguarding people who live in these territories, their values and their future.
Over the past 20 years, Vietnam has lost more than 1.5 million hectares of forest to unsustainable logging, agricultural expansion and infrastructure development. To reverse this trend, it is vital to prevent illicit practices led at the expense of both vegetation and wildlife. We will implement forest monitoring measures, aiming at restoring the pristine species mix where it is altered.
In the last few decades, Vietnam has lost major forest areas to logging, an increasingly urgent issue that must be solved. In the past 20 years alone, more than 1.5 million hectares of forests have been lost to unsustainable logging, agricultural expansion, and urban and infrastructure development. This tragic phenomenon is costing us more than expected. Losing forests equals to losing benefits generated every day: CO2 capture, biodiversity protection, water resource improvement, and employment opportunities for local communities. To reverse this trend, the Huong Son Forest Company engages in daily surveillance and monitoring, aimed at preventing illegal logging and poaching activities. It will also be useful to plan ecological enrichment, studies and research for the conservation of the forest and its biodiversity.
