Hear hear to the above. I suggest those who wish to involve themselves in heated
debate on enviro-politics are encouraged elsewhere (possibly by starting a
specialised newsgroup for the purpose). 

This group could be the focus for the transfer of many interesting forestry and
agro forestry ideas from one part of the world to another - I spend a lot of my
time transfering good forestry ideas from one part of the UK to another to good
effect so the potential for this group must be enormous.

There is a place for passionate environmental debate - just not here.

PS Should there be a separate FORESTRY or FORESTRY/SILVICULTURE group?
