Joe,

That you might be a forester (and perhaps one of several) not
supporting these openings doesn't address that fact that there are
other foresters that do.

This should be fodder for a professional discussion, but posting a
"massacre"?  The fact that different people can look at these pictures
and have completely different opinions on them, ranging from disgust
to appreciation, should be clear enough evidence that this approach
does not do science-based forestry any justice.

Interestingly, it hasn't proven to be too simplistic to be effective,
but this effectiveness has largely been among the public and not in
the professional community.

As foresters, we should be doing a lot better than this.

Chris
