Welcome to The Coalition to Save the Elms Webpage Citizen Action for the Urban Forest and Urban Environment In communities across Manitoba, the American Elm dominates the landscape. Elms grace our yards, parks, riverbanks and form a lush canopy- a bower of foliage over our streets. There is no other tree that compares to the American Elm in terms of hardiness, salt tolerance, longevity, suitability to our climate and sheer grandeur. It defines our neighbourhoods and our tenacious prairie spirit. There are over 200,000 American Elms in Winnipeg. Most visitors are astounded by our urban forest- you literally can't see the buildings for the forest when flying into Winnipeg. Unfortunately, elms across the world have been threatened or eliminated by Dutch Elm Disease (D.E.D.). In many provinces, the elm population has been wiped out by this deadly disease. In Manitoba, both the provincial government and many municipalities have cost-shared integrated D.E.D. control programs which have safeguarded the elms so far.

Forests and Biodiversity
Deforestation remains one of the pressing global natural resource problems facing humankind. Tropical forests, in particular, continue to disappear at a staggering rate in the face of growing populations and the demand for economic goods. Over the past decade, 154 million hectares of tropical forests, equivalent to almost three times the land area of France, have been cleared. (page 1 of 12) Christopher Gronbeck - October 25, 1994

Mother Nature mending Florida's fire-ravaged forests
July 9, 1998
Web posted at: 2:36 p.m. EDT (1836 GMT) VOLUSIA COUNTY, Florida (CNN) Wildfires have charred hundreds of thousands of acres across Florida since late May, and some of the fires are still burning. RELATED VIDEO
Netshow It could take months, or even years to rebuild fire-damaged structures. It could also take years to rejuvenate the blackened lands. While Florida's residents and officials are still assessing the fire damage, Mother Nature already has started healing the forests. Check out Correspondent Brian Cabell's report.

Food chain
For a start, an estimated 75 percent of fish caught commercially spend some time in the mangroves or are dependent on food chains which can be traced back to these coastal forests. Mangroves also protect the coast by absorbing the energy of storm driven waves and wind. The only two yachts undamaged by Cyclone Tracey in Darwin in 1974 had sheltered in a mangrove creek. While providing a buffer for the land on one side, mangroves also interact with the sea on the other. Sediments trapped by roots prevent silting of adjacent marine habitats where cloudy water might cause corals to die. In addition, mangrove plants and sediments have been shown to absorb pollution, including heavy metals. Now that their economic and ecological importance has been recognised we carry the responsibility to look after our mangroves. What is a mangrove?
Zones in the mangroves
As a general rule zones of dominant mangrove species run parallel to the shoreline or to the banks of tidal creek systems. The seaward side of the community is likely to be dominated by a fringe of grey mangroves Avicennia marina as it is best adapted to early colonisation and a wide range of soil conditions.

A forest, in the simplest of terms, is a community of trees, plants, animals and soils. When people think about forests, they may think of outdoor recreation, timber products, or wilderness experiences; but, forests also play a vital role in protecting our environment. By storing water and filtering contaminated runoff, absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen, and providing wildlife habitats, forests affect our lives everyday in many ways.

Select Page
Forests are America’s great outdoors. They encompass 736 million acres of land or about one third of the United States. National Forests account for about one-fourth of all forestland in this Nation . In some places, for example South Carolina, forests cover about 60% of the state’s land area. There are many varied owners of forestlands in the U.S. In other areas, such as the Great Plains, forestland is at a premium. Nationwide, State and County governments own 64 million acres, while private individuals (some 10 million strong) own 337 million acres.
What is a Forest?
Chances are that you’ve walked in a forest at least once. It may have been in one of the national forests or parks, a state forest, or one of the tens of thousands of local parks that dot the Nation’s countryside (even in urban settings). Parks such as Central Park in New York City and Rock Creek Park in the Greater Washington, DC area attest to the presence of larger urban-treed lands.
