Comments: What A Bunch Of Crap

And in the SE US (like here in Georgia), trees are grown like any other cash crop: Plant 'em, let 'em grow, harvest 'em, replant the acreage. Just like wheat. Only it takes years instead of months for the crop to come to maturity.

I don't know what "virgin" forests these knuckleheads are talking about, unless they think that planted, cultivated forests are "virgin" because hippies don't come in and eff them up.

By the way, here's the Georgia Forestry Commission site's price list for seedlings:

The SE isn't the only part of the country where trees are grown as a renewable cash crop -- I'm just waiting for them to start targeting Christmas Trees. Oregon's the #1 grower around, and a blue state -- it's always fun watching them eat their own.

I will fight to the death for my ultra soft Charmin.
