Earth Answers: How are Trees Grown for Paper?

Resource URL:
Description: Learn about where the trees come from that we use for paper and other daily wood products. Understand how recycling paper products helps the environment and find out how you can help with this global effort. Because of forest management, we can periodically harvest trees to make paper and other products and then replant to ensure that forest will continue to grow and grow. Trees are a renewable resource. How we use the wood we get from trees is illustrated and through the Green Quiz, students can assess their attained knowledge about trees.
