She is the founder of the Old-Growth Forest Network, the first national organization working specifically to preserve ancient forests for the enjoyment of present and future generations. In counties capable of supporting forest growth the organization identifies at least one forest that will be forever protected from logging and open to the public. Maloof also speaks out to help save threatened forests and educates about their importance. She is the author of five books about forests: Teaching the Trees; Among the Ancients; The Living Forest; Treepedia; and Nature’s Temples. She is a Professor Emeritus at Salisbury University where she taught biology and environmental studies.
