Ecological effects of clearcutting

Pierre Ibisch, Professor for Nature Conservation and Founding Director of the Centre for Econics and Ecosystem Management discusses the ecological effects of clearcutting forests.

Here in Southeast, Massachusetts, hundreds of acres of biodiverse and globally rare pine barrens forests are being destroyed for sand mining and industrial ground-mounted solar. This is having devastating impacts on ecosystems, biodiversity, local communities, and the climate.
