On 'Lorax' release day, forestry community celebrates value of American forests

Friday, March 2, 2012

On March 2, Dr. Suess's birthday, Universal Pictures has released its new animated version of the classic children's tale, The Lorax. A lot has changed since the book was published in the early '70s, and today sustainable management guides the way we care for America's trees and forests. The forestry community is celebrating these strides and reminding Americans how important our forests are to our health, economy and environment. From Georgia to Hawaii, NASF members are distributing tree seedlings, educating children about trees and forests, and working to ensure that forests continue to benefit us today and in future generations.
