Re: “The Triangle Land Conservancy's deep cuts

Thank you Laura for a great article.
I suspect that most people who donate their land to TLC do so with the understanding that their land will become a preserve and not logged. I also know that good folks can stipulate that their land not be logged but I'm sure no one in TLC tells them that. Considering that a high proportion of timber is now being sold to China for pulp; why would we want our lands harvested?
We need them as carbon sinks, to clean our air, to cool our cities and to keep the biodiversity of animal species.
I would like to see NC become one of the States on the eastern seaboard that is protecting land so it can become an old growth forest again and frankly, I don't care how long that takes! I am aware that the timber industry feeds our forestry schools and makes sure their interests are protected. . As a citizen of this great state, my interests are in having more forests and I do trust nature more than man, so no matter how much schooling you've had in sustainable forestry management, I want to know that what you do serves the best long term interests of our planet and it's people. And Michael B, what wrong with lots of Tulip Trees?
