Forestry logging off thousands of acres
I know that the forestry department is to log so much off of certain areas for timber and to keep up with the habitat changes but why are they clear cutting thousands of acres all spring,summer and fall every year in the same general area ? It really makes no sense other than them logging it just for the money ! They have actually devastated the complete area as the only trees left in the areas are small pines,dead oaks and severly crooked trees ! I know that over the years it will provide allot of browse but all of the acorns and food that they took out of there for winter food will never be replaced ! They the rest of the areas that have been clear cut several years ago are all fenced in and have been for about 4 yrs now and whats inside the fence looks no different than whats outside the fence so why are they doing it ? I could see if they fenced it in right after they clear cut it so all the natural vegetation can come back but they don't they wait 5 - 8 yrs before they fence it !
It just looks sick when you take a mountain ride and all you see is logged off areas that look like barren ground !!
Blend in or go hungry !!
