Damaging logging operations on federal public lands costs U.S. taxpayers nearly $2 billion each year

A May 2019 report by the Center for Sustainable Economy says the
logging program on federal forests continues to lose money for U.S. taxpayers in the range of $1.5 to $2.0 billion per year. Each year, the U.S. Forest Service authorizes logging of roughly 3 billion board feet of timber – equivalent to 650,000 full log truck loads – from national forest lands. This logging comes at a steep environmental cost in the form of loss of biological diversity, damage to water supplies, and increased risks from wildfires, flooding, and climate change.
