Hi Mike,

I'm curious.  What is your cost as a percentage of gross sales on your county's

BTW, I for one am not arguing that cutting should be shut down on USFS lands. 
I'm arguing that the land should be turned over to federal trusts, as suggested
by Randal O'Toole and others.  See especially Pilot
4: Forest Trusts.  The idea is to introduce some fiduciary responsibility and
thereby to lower costs.

Also, for the record, I think the USFS does a lot of good research.  But that's
about all that they do well IMO.
