No, it's not even relevant. As much as hippies like to pretend there's something you can do in your home to help the environment, this is not a US problem. Forest coverage in the US has grown substantially since the 50s, as crop yields increase there is simply less farmland, and more forest.
Bullshit. The same utter bullshit that the forest products industry has been spewing for almost as long. "Trees - America's renewable resource". Well, if by "trees" we mean large swaths of Douglas Fir or Poplar monoculture, sure. If we mean a mature and diverse climax forest, no. Not even close. If, by "renewable", we mean "we grow as many board feet as we harvest", again, no. Not even close, the boast about "we plant ten trees for every tree we cut down" sounds good, but it is nowhere near actually replacing what was lost.
