Description

“Liquidating the Forests” investigated the trail of illegal lumber stolen in Russia, shipped to China and sold in Canada. We looked at how Asia's last remaining old growth forests, in the Russian Far East were being cut by Russian crime syndicates, then shipped to China where they were processed into hardwood flooring. This clear cutting in Siberia is also responsible for decimating the population of the world's last remaining Siberian tigers who live in this unique habitat. Our investigation was able to trace the wood back to the world's biggest flooring retailer, Lumber Liquidators which sold these floors at a deep discount across North America.
