    I would go with Dad. Progress is not always good, I cannot take it, when it ruins nature!

    Why the voice of citizens is never obliged?
    The government/dad would have the trees cut when it/he gets paid for it.

    re: :LX013
    .
    The good news is that nature recovers rapidly when given a chance.
    .
    An example is the common sheepway at Shaniko. In the late 1800s, Shaniko was big sheep producer and still produces sheep and cattle. The different flocks would go down the same fenced pathway, eating the plants as they went along.

    I went with a group of bios back in the late 1990s to check it out. The NC (back when they still did conservation) had bought up the sheepway and after 2 years, most of the annuals like Bromus tectorum had reverted to native bunchgrasses like crested bluegrass and poa secunda.
    .
    Even more impressive was a mercury mine site south of Steens Mountain. The BLM had closed it down and put the tailings in a large fenced-in square. In just four years, it had returned to the Great Basin wild rye, with plants 3’ tall.
    .
    Mt. St. Helens, when it went off, had the usual “it’ll never recover” but in short order trees were growing again. If one didn’t know what had happened in 1980, one wouldn’t guess that it had blown out the entire side of the mountain and flattened/covered large portions of the Gifford Pinchot forest 33 years ago.
    .
    Prince William Sound was back up to 90% and higher populations of 70% of the species two years after the Exxon Valdez spill.
    .
    Given a chance, nature recovers. Unfortunately today, the ecos are destroying forests and national treasures. An example is the 300 years of fire return in a handful of days in the Mt. Washington wilderness when they torched it in protest of Bush’s visit in 2003. It will recover, and is now covered with trees, but it won’t be late successional for many years.

    He must mean the hill he goes careening down
    which on his sled or little red wagon? Never
    knew it was ‘their’ hill [in the sense that would
    give them the right to cut down the trees if they
    wished….

    There’s a ski lift on the opposite side of the valley where I live. Not so noisy unless they produce snow. Which they do even – or rather especially – at night.

    Yes, we must give nature a chance to recover, it must be observed and people must respect it!!
