No I never said that- I've always said that the foresters should be working hard practicing forestry.

I love people cutting trees but not just ANY trees- trees that are picked for harvest by a well educated, well
trained forester who had concern for the long term well being of the ecosystem- while duly considering the long
term economics of the forest, that is, the forest as an economic entity which should attempt to yield a high
rate of return on investment; which only to small minded woodchuck foresters means very short rotations
producing lots of low value wood fiber.

Managing logging jobs is where I make most of my income. But, many loggers and foresters are scum balls. You
seem to think all logging is good- anyone who gets in the way is bad, typical Rush Limbaugh type thinking, black
and white.
