Hardly likely to make a dent considering the millions of acres lost to deforestation courtesy of the indigenous population wanting to make a living out of farming. Or cultivation of cocaine or something else more profitable LoL
There is a serious issue here regarding rain forests and deforestation. These woods are banned from import for a good reason. Guitar makers need to move towards getting wood from sustainable sources. Reading the article it seems that some of it may have come from India and may have come from sustainable sources but was wrongly coded. However if we keep on felling in the wrong areas the wood will not be there in future years and it causes other problems too.
