You should rephrase that to "... they don't in SOME state governments."
Although apparently not the case in Massachusetts, quite a few states have
forestry programs that return revenues to their coffers that exceed their
forestry costs by significant multiples. I know that is the case in both
Oregon & Washington, and I believe it is also true in several southern
states. Here in Oregon there are also at least 2 counties (Coos & Hood
River) that own enough forest land to have their own forestry staff and fund
a significant portion of their OVERALL county budget with the financial
returns from their forestry. operations.
