I mourn the loss of these forests and trails, logged by the Community Forest and other organizations, and despair of the future with less and less forested areas to enjoy and supply us with much needed oxygen and other benefits of intact old growth forests. Why don’t we create more tree farms and log them instead of using old growth to log?

When are we going to wake up to the realization that mankind, to survive well, needs forests, not to exploit endlessly, but to enjoy and celebrate!
