Colombian wood cutters float timbers from the Pacific rainforest in a sea bay close to Tumaco, Colombia, 15 June 2010. Tens of sawmills located on the banks of the Pacific jungle rivers generate almost half of the Colombia's wood production. The wood species processed here (sajo, machare, roble, guabo, cargadero y pacora) are mostly used in the construction industry and the paper production. Although the Pacific lush rainforest in Colombia is one of the most biodiverse area of the world, the region suffers an extensive deforestation due to the uncontrolled logging in the last years.
