A quote from "Purple Hearts and Ancient Trees", by Jay Gruenfeld		

CLEARCUTTING:  "....Like the ugly part of the birth of a baby,
clearcutting is a small part of the total life of a forest, just as
birth is a samll part of a total human life.  Unfortunately,
clearcutting can be viewed by the public, and can be a shocking sight
that makes some people so emotional that they fail to consider:  This in
the long run is the best way to get the species back which will produce
the most benefits for humankind.... The forest industry continues to
make too many oversized clearcuts in scenically sensitive areas-- but
they are improving."
