Big Trees, Not Big Stumps

We want big trees, not big stumps!

...unless after we log we replant, then let the forest grow unmolested for the next 250 - 1000 years.

Instead, "crop" rotations are in the span of a few short decades, ensuring that bleak mono-culture tree plantations replace vibrant, ecologically diverse old growth.

We want big trees, not big stumps.

  2. Thank you for speaking out for big trees and old-growth forests. You are so right. Once you cut old-growth, it's virtually gone forever....at least in any meaningful way. We have so little of these forests left. Let's keep them.
