This chapter profiles the political and economic contexts that fostered the expansion of the commercial logging industry and logging concessions in the Philippines in the 20th century. It addresses the role played by the American colonial government, including the involvement of Dean Worcester and Gifford Pinchot, and draws parallels between the US conservation movement and the Philippine environmental movement. It also tells the story of Nerilito Satur, one of dozens of forest guards deputized by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to safeguard local forests, and who were murdered for their work.
