"This issue of arborvitae focuses on forest finance, a topic that some in the conservation community might still view with suspicion. Isn't it all about funding commercial forestry operations? What has it got to do with conserving biodiversity or supporting community forestry?

Stewart Maginnis, Head of IUCN's Forest Conservation Programme
