Been there, done that, Steve.  <g>

I make every effort to educate landowners I work with.  In the end you
still have to do what the client wants.  It's foolish to turn down business
just because the landowner is not interested in good forestry.  After all,
someone else will come along and take the work if you don't.  I still sleep
well at night.
