Can you make this sentence with 'si on ne fait rien'?

Yes, you can.

I wonder if we can make this sentence with sinon ? Please enlighten me.

And any reason to reject ce bois au lieu de cette foret ?

That would need a substantial change in the structure, especially turning "si nous ne faisons rien" into the affirmative voice:

  • Il faut faire quelque chose, sinon cette forêt va mourir.

"Un bois" is smaller than "une forêt".
