Bob, please define what you mean when you say environmentalist.
I am just trying to understand.

Humpty Dumpty said a word means only what he wants it to mean. Socrates, a
great philosopher, said, just tell us what you want your word to mean.   And
Voltaire, another great thinker, said, when we know what you mean by your
words, arguments and misunderstandings will seldom happen. So be it  (SHIGO,
2000).   One more thing, to consider.   Consider poor Joe who liked alcohol.
Drank methanol rather than ethanol. He then quickly learned, as his brain
got burned. That words are important after all (SHIGO, 1999).

Beware of so-called tree experts who do not understand tree biology.

Logging and Dictionary

Storms, fires, floods, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions keep reminding us
that humans are not the boss.
Trying to treat what you do not understand is the same as trying to start a
Rolls Royce by hitting it with a sledgehammer.
Logging for fire control - sure - but guess what - A tourniquet will stop a
nosebleed too!
Hey, if you log your leg - You will not have another ingrown toe nail on
that foot.

Ezekiel 39:10 (KJV)
So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out
of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall
spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the
Lord GOD.
