I agree that many loggers who work in the forest are trying to be good 
stewards BUT, there will always be those who do not care (name a profession 
where that doesn't apply), economic factors (after all they are producing the 
wood and paper WE use every day) and biological factors( an old growth forest 
can be managed in ways that a high-graded forest cannot - they mus work 
with the mistakes of the past just like everyone else).

If you want better forestry Practices, be willing to pay more for your wood. 
Don't place the burden on the hard working guy at the end of the chainsaw!
