REVEALED: Devastating pictures of the rape of America’s century-old hardwood forests… stripped bare to provide wood pellets for European energy plants – in a deluded bid to meet climate goals

  • Historic forests stretching from Texas to Virginia are under threat
  • More than two dozen pellet mills are devouring trees across the North American Coastal Plain
  • Wood pellet firm chiefs say they use waste wood, create jobs and benefit the U.S. southeast 
  • But really, majestic century-old trees are being logged, environmentalists say
  • The E.U. this week started cutting the subsidies that make the trade possible 
  • Campaigners say ‘loopholes’ will help pellet firms keep on ripping up the forests
