A good decision overall.  Fallen trees and logs provide shelter for saplings
and fuel for fungi and homes for insects and animals.

In short, fallen trees are part of the natural environment. Removing them
will reduce the rate at which the forest recovers.  Removing them through
standard methods will greatly damage the forest floor and reduce even
further the rate at which the forest recovers.
