Government rarely does anything right, so perhaps more discretion is better. It's my understanding that forests should be like a city park for best results. 50 foot hard wood trees spaced 20 to 50 feet apart, with narow strips of short grass in between will remove more green house gas (per acre) than any other kind of forest and provide pleasent recreation for people, and habitat for SOME kinds of wild life. Forest fires will be rare and much easier to put out if they do occur. It will however produce less timber and paper than pine trees and costs will be higher per acre. Cutting selected trees (with little damage to other trees) will be practical due to the the wide spacing of the trees. Neil
