LOGGING, BRAZIL. Amazon, vicinity Paragominas. Mahogany tree being felled. Commercial logging in itself does not lead to total deforestation. However, the logging operations and roads open the forest to slash and burn cultivators who quickly colonize and cut the remaining forest to grow crops and the forest is destroyed. CDREF00323
