Stop Big Companies from Burning Our Forests

    1. Sponsored by

      Dogwood Alliance

Right now, energy companies are cutting and burning our Southeastern forests to make electricity in power plants. Burning trees for electricity creates more carbon pollution than coal, gas and oil. It's a dirty process that destroys our forests.

Three companies--Enviva LP, Dominion Power, and Drax Group--lead the industry in cutting and burning forests for electricity. Virginia-based Dominion Power and UK-based Drax Group buy millions of tons of wood from our Southern forests for fuel. Enviva, the South’s largest wood pellet manufacturer, supplies them both—and plans to double production in the coming years.

Defend our forests - tell these companies that burning trees for energy isn't green!

      “How can we be so arrogant? The planet is, was, and always will be stronger than us. We can't destroy it; if we overstep the mark, the planet will simply erase us from its surface and carry on existing. Why don't they start talking about not letting the planet destroy us?”

      Deforestation needs to stop all together. We need our carbon filters and our oxygen producers. Loss of the trees harms all life on Earth, including us. This epidemic needs to end.
