RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Too much of the comment data is about entitlement. Save the steams for me, save the trees for the future, etc.. These are living things that must be managed, not preserved. We have too much federal land that is being mismanaged by undercutting now.
These are State forests well managed by the State for "all of the people of Oregon." The amount of timber harvested each year is monitored by on going checks of annual growth.
No one is talking about where most of the revenue goes,To our most valuable resource, our children. When we are cutting school budgets and laying off too many people, it should be about sustaining our cuts in a renewable resoure, not locking them up.
Young trees gather and store carbon faster than old trees, therefore it is prudent to cut old trees and replace them with young.
