Are there any practical alternatives to logging?

    Yes.  Using reclaimed wood is an excellent way to both prevent unncecessary logging and put wood that would otherwise end up in a land fill to good use.  Reclaimed wood, which can be salvaged from old barns or other buildings that are being torn down, is often from old growth forests, which means in many cases it’s actually better quality than the stuff you get new.  Moreover, because it’s been dead for years, it tends to have a lower moisture content, which is advantageous for building.

    On a similar note, recycled paper can also be used to make new paper products without having to cut down more trees.  According to one estimate, more than 7 million trees are cut down each year just to make toilet paper for the USA.  Recycling paper and buying recycled paper products could save countless trees from being cut down.
