We dont need organizations trying to control the forest resource.  We
need organizations to control the production of forest products.  Parts
of the woods need to remain wild, nature has an incredible ability to
belie the benefits of mans intervention.  An old age southern yellow
pine forest can be biologically sterile, or a mass of pulsating life,
all created by nature, but under very rare circumstances can man create
anything but a thin reflection of natures greatness.
