Great article in The Mercury last week about industrial tree plantations in South Africa and Swaziland. The article focusses on the fact that these plantations are certified as well managed under the Forest Stewardship Council system and the fact that FSC is carrying out a Plantations Review. The article asks whether FSC’s logo on paper products is really worth a row of beans.



The Forestry Stewardship Council symbol should indicate ethical paper production practices, but is this merely another way of ‘greenwashing’ environmentally and economically unfriendly realities?
