Les, I gotta agree with ya, at least kind of, we harvest a crop of timber every 10-15 years, and if done right you hardly know it was done. The only Clear cutting we see here is done by nature, 'cept for the bible camp that clearcut the whole mountainside, now that's a mess.
Anyway, a forest fire seems to recover at least 5 years faster than a clearcutting, the pines move in and take over in just a year or 18 months, they seem to keep other saplings from taking over until it's their turn.
Hope to see no more clearing of the land in either fashion, in my life time.
Later
Ron
