"<<But if you live in a nicely treed neighborhood, tele & SP, I bet you wouldn't like to see all the trees clear cut around you either.>> "

Texas has a million acres of trees and hundreds of millions are made chopping them down each year. They grow back. Industry plants more trees than they cut down.

Logging has been going on in Texas for over 150 years successfully.

I see no reason why it should not be the same out west. can't cut those trees because, duh, that forest was never cut once? But right next to it is second and 3rd growth forest doing just as well , if not better.

Yeah..just wait for a forest fire....and see what happens. in 30 years the forest is growing massively again....

The greenies main goal is to depopulate rural America and stuff everyone in econo-box teeny apartments in gigantic complexes where they can ride mass transit to their ever boring make work government jobs shuffling paper and doing each others taxes.
