I agree with you. There isn't much of interest for me either in this
group. Brian answered you and mentioned a certain Forestry homepage. I
looked it up and gave a small contribution to the list about "Who I
am". But this forum wasn't intended for pure discussions. You might
find people there to whom you can mail privately.

Of course practical forestry is different in different parts of the
world but many hands-on-problems ought to be the same. I am living and
working (Well, I am retired.) in northern Sweden. Maybe we ought to
start a newsgroup of our own or at least a thread within this group. I
suggest the threadname: Forestry in praxis. Who will start the thread
an bring the beer?
