Au contraire - over the past several decades, at least in the West, the 
number planted has exceeded the number cut by a comfortable margin. Of 
course the newly planted aren't "Old Growth".

Give me a break, and check your facts before recyclying the 
anti-capitalist Greens crap. We have more trees today in North America 
than we had in 1900. Since that verifiable fact might impair your 
ideologically bent polemics, you'd prefer to pretend it doesn't exist.
