My company has a 25,000 acre timber concession in Guyana. We want
to develop a program that will encourage other concessionaires to
reduce cutting and exporting logs. Our own program involves methods
that are ecologically sustainable to all forest life. The few trees
that are harvested will be put to the highest use. We plan to
produce items for selective markets rather than mass markets. For
example, a custom crafted kit home for those that appreciate the
beauty of tropical woods. In so doing we will employ more people,
cut less trees and direct profits toward rangers to protect the
rest of the concession from further cutting.
Now, we want to invite interested persons to submit their ideas of
how best to practice ecological sustainability. Please, no jokes,
or insults, this is serious business. We have a chance to develop a
program that could save as much as a million acres of rain forest.
Submit your comments and ideas and we will place you on our mailing
list for regular updates.
