Now, more than ever, money drives Congress where laws and policies are
created. If they can be see the financial wisdom of managing forests using
sound silviculture, laws requiring good forestry can be a good investment
over the long and short run. Some forestry consultants, like Karl and Joe Z,
can clean up a neglected forest, make some bucks AND set up a stand of trees
for a better future harvest. Who knows how much clear, tight-grained pine
and hardwood logs will be worth in the near future.
