I've often wondered that myself, Larry. There are vast acreages of forests
that 99.9% of Americans will never see. Every year, our forests put on X
amount of growth and produce more and more biomass. There is a limit to how
much biomass a piece of ground can support. Many areas of the West are
already overstocked and unhealthy. A hands off approach is THE worst thing
to do at this time.

As I have said before, there WILL be logging in our National Forests. It is
just up to us Americans to decide whether the tress will be green, brown or
black when they are harvested.
