The roar of a chainsaw shatters the peaceful calm of the Karelia forest in Northwestern Russia. A logger carves into an exquisite giant -- a 600-year-old tree -- with expert precision. Within minutes, he has masterfully sliced through tree rings, added the

I used to buy things at IKEA, but decided not to when I learned they lied about sustainability! My last purchase there was a dresser, 2 years ago. The wood is beautiful: it makes me sad to look at it! Signed and noted, thanks Nancy!

IKEA prides itself on an image of being clean and caring. It seems the stories we've heard lately don't back this up. They'd better clean up their act.

It has become abundantly clear that we are losing the last natural beautiful places this world has to offer due to money. Your stores claim that they do not use any old growth forest wood in your products but the fact is, that is a lie. Not only are you destroying some of the last remaining old growth forests, you are killing thousands of unique animal species in the process. Please stop now before these treasures are gone forever. This kind of situation is happening all over the world. It has to stop. Be a part of the solution, not the problem.

" I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

~ Joyce Kilmer from 'Trees', 1914 ~
