Korea Clear-Cut 500-year-old Trees for Skiing

South Korea, organizers of the 2018 Winter Olympics, is clear-cutting part of an ancient forest that includes 500-year-old trees on a protected mountain near Pyeongchang for a 3-day ski competition. “When it’s a choice between tearing down 500-year-old trees and looking for an alternative venue, you should look for an alternative venue,” said Dalia Hashad, campaign director of the international advocacy group Avaaz.
