Thinning Out the Forest

Dyke Hendrickson's Cabin Country has a good description of how a responsible logger practices his craft.
Bob is getting permission from the Road Commissioner to build a temporary gravel pathway over a culvert in order to get his equipment into the forest.

And he appears to be getting a permit from the Conservation Commission.
Bob took me on a tour of a parcel from which he took wood last year.

He took less than 50 percent of the standing trees, and the forest looks pretty darn good. [Link]
