How is sustainable timber produced?

Sustainable logging means logging an area in such a way as there is always trees to be cut. In other words, logging in a way that leaves young trees, medium age trees and mature trees behind each time you log, so that you can always log that area in the future. The opposit is called "clear cutting" which means you can't go back in that area to log for over thirty years. Re-planting the area can be part of your sustainable logging plan. I have sustainable logging operations on my hundred acres in Maine and except for the skidder trails throughout the woods, you would not notice the loss of trees each year.

Why Logging makes the animals habitat gone?

Some animals live in trees, and some people just don't care. Sustainable logging practices aim to replace trees removed by logging, and to remove trees at a rate that does not exceed the rate at which new trees can grow to replace them. Even sustainable logging practices can have an impact on an ecosystem, for instance if a forest of several kinds of trees is replaced with a single variety that may be more profitable for the logging company. However, in many cases logging is performed with total disregard for wildlife or even human residents. Logging unsustainably is cheaper in the short term, and the cleared land can provide farmland for growing crops and raising cattle. Because of the composition of forest soil, however, this soil may only be suitable farmland for a couple of seasons, prompting further logging and habitat destruction in order to provide more farmland.
