Article on tree plantations for South Africa

We wrote an article on the issue of tree plantations, aimed at a South African audience, for the Environmental Networking Justice Forum’s bulletin. Chris Albertyn, current director of ENJF, had previously been extremely helpful in providing us with information on the plantations issue in South Africa, much of it included in “Pulping the South”. Chris is also actively distributing copies of the book, which, he says, “is clearly having an impact -in the province where I live (Kwa Zulu Natal) we have formed a coalition of organisations which calls itself TIMBERWATCH”. If anyone wants a copy of the article (Industrial tree plantations: a growing problem), please let us know and we will send it by email.
