The problem of deforestation is very acute in Chile. During 10 years, from 1985 to 1995, nearly 2 million hectares of Chilean forests were lost. The trees were cut down for pulp. As the result of this uncontrolled process, Chile has the world's largest expanse of radiata pine tree farms and most endangered native forests.

Everyone's efforts are valued, only together the nation is able to revive the Chilean native forests and keep their beautiful land and fertile soils for the future generations.
