Who Are The World's Major Treekillers (Deforesters)?

by SNS Thursday, Jul. 16, 2015 at 10:54 AM

Deforestation is the biggest cause of violent weather patterns and climate freezing and heating.Some countries such as Korea after the war and Haiti have had such poverty that they were virtually totally deforested. Deserts have been created by past treekillers.

Because the average tree evaporates 42 gallons of moisture daily, creating mist, then clouds and f inally rain, trillions more trees are indispensable for planetary survival as well as the most prolific source of free food and animal habitat.

Below are 39 categories of deforesters.

Deforestation is the biggest cause of violent weather patterns and climate freezing and heating.Some countries such as Korea after the war and Haiti have had such poverty that they were virtually totally deforested. Deserts have been created by past treekillers.

Because the average tree evaporates 42 gallons of moisture daily, creating mist, then clouds and f inally rain, trillions more trees are indispensable for planetary survival as well as the most prolific source of free food and animal habitat.

Below are 39 categories of deforesters.


1. All who wage war, bombing trees, smashing bushes with tanks

2. The cattle, sheep, and other ranchers whose victims in grazing pull up sapling trees and prevent reforestation

3. Corporations selling animal or bird flesh The Brazilian company JBS is the world's largest animal flesh company and a major destroyer of rainforest.

4. Fast food chains, restaurants, grocery stores selling animal and bird flesh

a. through paper cups, bags, napkins, burrito, sub sandwich and other sandwich wraps, straw coverings,

b. through the environmental devastation of animal flesh

A Duke University website reported data which has been multiplied since then

Every year McDonald's produces over a million tons of packaging which is used for a few minutes and then thrown away

5. Large daily newspapers and newspaper chains such as Rupert Murdoch's newspapers in Australia, the UK, US etc. as well as book publishing houses.

6. Major utilities

a. burning wood chips and wood. 46 US senators want to help them expand their drought generating, forestfire generating, animal habitat destroying practices.

b. decapitate mountains for coal

c. maim and remove trees for power lines while in Europe power lines are put underground, saving trees and making the world more beautiful.

7. Developers who bulldoze forests and meadows

8. Builders who use wood for homes, decks etc.

9. Furniture makers who do not use metal with cotton pillows or hard plastic

10. Monocrop linear row growers of wheat, corn, soy, tobacco, etc. who are not planting nut and fruit trees interspersed

11, Red Plum and other junk mailers who kill trillions of trees (Red Plum is a major scofflaw which does not honor many requests to be off their mailing lists).

12. Paper cereal box sellers, foods, cola, alcohol and all others selling paper boxes, cans and bottles in cardboard

13. Firestarters

a. intentional arsonists

b. accidental arsonists

c. the USDA and others who do 'controlled burns' whose windchange fires benefit the lumber industry

14. All manufacturers of paper

15. All lumber companies (Weyerhaeuser, Georgia Pacific etc.)

16. All who mow, preventing reforestation

17. All who eat animal and bird flesh

18. All who publish magazines or newsletters on nonrecycled paper (cotton and rice paper are two less violent alternatives)

19. Those who fill landfills with their nonrecycled trash, causing future bulldozers.

20. Those who sell or buy nonrecycled greeting cards, envelopes, paper

(Some Office Max outlets have only 99% recycled while other office chains have 100%)

21. Those who throw away rather than recycling paper

22. Those who use paper grocery bags rather than a cloth reusable bag

23. Frackers like the Koch Brothers and Prime Minister Steve Harper who have destroyed thousands of square miles of forest, and have caused thousands of fires in Canada, Alaska etc.

24. Chains such as Dollar General, grocery stores etc which give a third of an 8.5 x 11 page receipt. All can make smaller receipts on recycled paper as well as asking customers if a receipt is needed.

32. Toilet paper manufacturers (water sprays can be installed at the side of toilets)

33. Those who buy dead Christmas trees and throw them away in a fortnight are a. deforesting, b filling landfills c. potentially causing fires

42 Ways To Help Trees Which Cool The Earth

Why is the area of most heat and light, the equator, only 70 degrees in equatorial rainforest and 130 degrees in temperate zone desert? Trillions of Trees. Trees as nature's weather stabilizers, trees, accounting for a 60 degree difference between rainforest on the equator and temperate zone desert, have been felled at an unprecedented rate. Harming trees causes fire, flood, famine, mudslides tornado and hurricane. :

1. Plant trees Work for city, state, country and UN tree planting
2. Stop mowing see indybay link below
3. Eat tree products.. fruits and nuts.. say yes to orchard growers See acorn dot net link below
4. Build with stone stucco brick and block not wood. You will a.prevent termite destruction nonviolently, b save the $,time, and environmental damage of paint, c have natural insulation with its energy savings, d. prevent rotting wood e. have better insulation in summer & winter f. end the disease related to living near the mold from rotting wood g. reduce the arsenic in the water systems, flowing in from pressed wood factories and h. have increasing rather than decreasing equity in your home. Use natural barriers such as bushes, or chain link, rather than wood fencing.
5. Cancel daily newspaper..and magazines and newsletters printed on felled trees, as 72% of the young have get your news on the web. Daily newspapers account for trillions of trees slaughtered annually and most promote anti environment corporations.In the US a high percentage of metropolitan dailies are controlled by warmongers as well.
6. Print on cotton, recycled or scrap paper
7. Use a water spray instead of toilet paper
8. Buy food naturally packaged.. nuts in nut shells, bananas in peels.. buy in bulk. Fruit is nature's most perfectly packaged food. How many trees go into cereal boxes
9. Use canvas bags for shopping.. neither plastic nor paper
10. Stop eating animal and bird flesh, since cutting forests for cattlegrazing is the major cause of deforestation.. Animal flesh yields a maximum of 100 to 1000 lbs an acre. Tri level agriculture (fruittrees, vines and fruit bearing plants) yields over 450,000 lbs. peracre. or 450 to 4500 times as much food as murdered mammals' flesh.
11. Work for peace.. work for an end to giving 10 million a day to violent governments, for the outlawing of membership on arms merchant boards by government officials and elsewhere radically affecting weather patterns.. work for an end to CIA, Army and other weather manipulation through Haarp, Woodpecker, chemtrail cloud seeding and other means. In 1972 Seymour Hersh reported in the NY Times the CIA's attempts through cloud seeding to cause flooding in N Vietnam.
12. Save fruit seeds and scatter them in wild places The average evaporation of mature trees is 42 gallons a day.. which becomes mist, then clouds, and then rain, eliminating drought.
13. Buy books and greeting cards published on cotton, rice, or other nontree paper.
14. Purchase furniture which is used and refurbish it or buy metal furniture with cotton padding. There are many nontree furniture options. The furniture, lumber, and construction businesses have lobbied for the cutting down of US forests, making the US a land of skinnier younger trees, whereas the UK, some cities in Maryland and California require a permit to cut down old trees.
15. Vote out earth abusers whether you oppose Republicans by voting Green, Libertarian, Socialist, Democrat or other.
16. Avoid fast food places which deforest for their packaging, have no recycling containers in most outlets, and create litter which fills dumpsites and requires labor pickup
17. visualize sun and green trees everywhere
18. pray, meditate
19. Outlaw junk mail (as telemarketers have been curbed). File a form with the main post office in your area. Return to sender. The GOP & junkmailers are requiring you to subsidize their treekilling and invasive practices.
20. Recycle cardboard cartons at commerical establishments. Recycle your own scrap paper.
21. Leave Christmas trees in the woods. Replace the purchase of dead Christmas trees with artificial trees.. or living ones planted each year in the year. Oregon is the biggest Christmas tree killer, making more than 7 billion annually from deforestation. Ending the purchase of cut trees a. is good for animal habitat b. prevents fires c. supports the rights of sentient trees d. promotes anti global heating air exchange e. saves a lot of money... for giving to your immediate family and friends or to the homeless
22. Save seeds of trees, vines, bushes, plants and scatter them where mowing does not occur
23. Ban the cutting of trees entirely as Thailand has down. The United Kingdom has banned the cutting of trees after they reach a certain width.. while Takoma Park Maryland in the US and other cities have required a permit to cut older trees. Around the world elephants are threatened by logging, as well as by poaching and war.
24. Stop through lawsuits, networking etc. the 'controlled fires' deliberately set by the US Park Service and the Forest Service... fires which often are made more lethal by the unpredictable wind.. fires which destroy trees, animals, birds, reptiles, insects. The United States is still a land of skinny trees, because of present control of the Usda Forest Svc. and National Park Service by lumber, mining oil and cattle interests.
25. Work for library, workplace, home, and other printers' use of cotton, recycled, or the back sides of already printed paper. Printer and copier manufacturers are part of the problem.
26. Stop the control of national and state executive branch, legislatures and courts by corporate contractors
27. Network with other environmentalists
28. Disinvest mutual funds, pension funds from earth abusing corporations 29. Replace paper towels with machine hand dryers or washed cotton rags.
30. Contact the USPS to give you a Direct Marketing Assoc. form.. which will stop both commercial and nonprofit junk mail delivered to your home http://www.the-dma.org/Advo is the world's largest junkmailer, killing trees both at the beginning and at the end as trees are bulldozed to make more landfill in which to put Advo junk.
31. Fax gives trees the ax... phone and email are more direct
32. Network with others working to end automatic phonebook distribution which besides killing trees .. would save the phone companies time gas and money
33. Please avoid insurance companies which mandate the killing of trees... (sometimes land speculators buy homes just long enough to put them on the market and profiteer from the sale... after axing centenarian trees...health departments too have joined in this anti health measure.)
34. Legislate underground power lines to save trees. This is done in several countries in Europe.
35. Clearcutting lumber and mining companies have caused flash floods around the world. One such began over the construction of 5000 homes near Beckley W. Va.
36. Lumber companies have put a variety of poisons into the waters.
37. Lumber companies have caused fires from dust accumulation such as the one occurring in Schofield Wisconsin in Oct. of 2005. Fire chief Doug Jennings: "It is my belief (the fire was caused by a dust explosion."
38. Using metal spiral staircases rather than wooden ones. Building with metal, stone, stucco, brick, block reinforced concete protects from fire, termites, the need to paint, keeps houses from floating away in floodsor being shattered by hurricanes, Recycled plastic is now pulverized and with concrete made into building blocks. It is made into other very strong wood substitutes.
39. Both a UN and a UK government report link cattle ranches and dairy products to global warming, as they cause the removal of trees.
40. Avoid wood chips. In a hot Houston park, wood chips spontaneously combusted, causing fire.
41. Respond to others. When the lumber industry says it plants saplings,it doesn't say that it takes 1000 years to replace a millennial oak, hundreds of years to replace multicentenarian firs.
42. There are a number of recycling companies which will put collection bins on your school, library, corporate, community or other property if you can generate 1000 or more pounds of paper per month (poundage varies per company.

Raking leaves a. wastes time b. fills landfills c. costs communities money d. removes blanketing leaves from Mother Earth during winter e . removes nuts which feed squirrels http://www.keeper.org


1. Become vegan

2. Say yes to trees by eating their fruit (Fruitarian food is arboreal food, the most nonviolent, healthiest, most reforesting etc.)

3. Buy no wood or paper

4. stop mowing
