Rainforest wood transportation
An Afro-Colombian wood sawyer cuts edges of a rough sawn board during wood processing in a sawmill in Quibdó, Colombia, 7 October 2019. Tropical hardwood is extracted from the Pacific rainforest, driven down the Atrato river to the sawmills and then sold in the ports to wood merchants. Low quality wood is transported throughout the country, used mainly for construction purposes, while the fine woods (choiba, mahogany etc.) is exported exclusively to China.
