Logging Forests: How Much is Enough?

Logging Forests: How Much is Enough?

"Silver Plaque Award" -Chicago IFF
"Highly Recommended. This program looks at a battle in the Tsitka Valley of British Columbia, Canada, where protesters attempt to block the logging of a pre-approved site. Unfortunately, for the loggers, efforts of some protesters often translates into loss of jobs and economic hardships for the loggers' families. Also this program is an excellent example of how fringe environmentalists can be out to lunch and thereby hurt the efforts of real activists." -Video Librarian
Logging forests can be a very controversial topic. On one hand the world needs sustainable forest management practices, on the other hand it is vital the world not suffer from over aggressive deforestation. Like everything that occurs with our environment, a system of balance is required. This candid documentary takes us to the Tsitka Valley of British Columbia, Canada, where we see protesters who want to block logging at a site that has already been approved; their protests raise questions on both sides of the argument. Do these types of protests help "save the trees" or do they prevent us from finding positive answers as to how to proceed? If the protests keep loggers from doing their jobs, how does this help these people and their families during economically difficult times? The answers lie in the objective planning that can result after broaching the ultimate question: how much is enough? Produced by Claudia Ferris. 01/09DE JSCA 30 min.
