Power from the Forest is the story of logging in the Philippines, the story of the exercise of power—who wields it, who beenfits from it and how.

In the 15 years since its founding, the PCIJ, has published more than a dozen books and produced several full-length documentaries, many of which have won major awards and citations, including five National Book Awards and a Catholic Mass Media Award.
