Trees are good for a lot more than just climbing and keeping our air clean! A new report by the United Nations says countries around the world should be looking to their forests for new job creation. In fact, they estimate the worldwide total of potential new jobs is around 10 million. A lot of nations that are logging and using up their natural wood reserves can hire groups of people to monitor the rate at which the forests are being depleted, and ensure that new trees are being planted and preserved for future use. Another big problem in the logging industry is water contamination, which opens doors to other jobs where skilled professionals are needed. Maintaining ecologic standards in these important areas is a great source for green jobs, and there’s nothing better for the Earth than sustaining its forests.
