Trying to convince a landowner that good forestry is also the correct
financial decision can be difficult. Luckily around here, land values
are so high because of the tourist industry- that I tell them if the
cutting is maximized to maximize the profit, then an even greater value
will be lost from the real estate value. I'm not sure if I could prove
the point in a court of law, but I think it's reasonable.
