Wood production should be de-emphasized and ecosystem management should
mandated as the default concept. Multiple use ideas should be de-emphasized
because many areas are not suitable for example: grazing and wilderness. I
don't want to see cows tromping and crapping in a stream through a high
elevation meadow when I am in a wilderness. How about you?

While we're at it, the forestry profession should be educating the
educators of our children so that they grow up confident that we are
managing our resources for healthy ecosystems and not for products and
profits.
