Yes I agree, it was interesting, even though Don Staples didn't make it.
What good is a serious discussion without a Texan present? <G>

Nick, sometime when you get a chance, please tell us more about forestry
in Scotland.
1.what species are present in your forests? much land is in forest?
3.who owns the land? (government, farmers and ranchers, recreationists,
4.what species of wildlife are common?
5.any efforts to reintroduce species that are not present in the British
Isles? like wolves, bears, birds of prey, etc. Scottish foresters wear kilts?
7.what is your business about?

I might add that several of my Yankee friends have recently visited
Scotland and said that it is a very beautiful country.

I'd really like to hear more about local conditions from working stiff
foresters around the world. I recently met a real PHD agroforester who
has worked in both Africa and South America and he had some fascinating
stories. So let's hear it from around the world.
