Here’s a factoid that you probably didn’t know: the illegal tree market is a billion dollar market. Wood, while renewable, doesn’t, uh, doesn’t grow on trees—well, actually, it does, but what we’re saying is that there are rules. Rules and consequences. It’s an ecosystem, after all, and it doesn’t take much to put it all out of whack.
We’re just amazed that “international timber cartels” are a thing.
