    problems in any environment. But if they handle it something like they tended to doin the past they will simply scarf it all out and leave the forests devastated. Years ago against the bitching of the lumber industry environmentlists forced harvesters to replant the forests and today that is what they have left to harvest in large part. Along the way studies were made of forests in controlled way. Not some observer making assumptions. I especially like how they leave a large tree in the midst of all the cut ones to somehow communicate to new trees ... the new trees thru studies were found to do better... So in Oregon when I drive by a new stand I see those big old trees in the middle of replants.

    But you are right about taking out the excess. There is also the danger of fire in drying out dead material... Nasty, really hot fires that can further damage the actual ground.
