Why was the sale of this forest jewel ever contemplated in the first place? With the current pace of forest destruction via development, the idea of a state enity agreeing to this "liquidation sale" is absurd. Why would anyone want to open up such a pristine piece of forest habitat to almost certain destruction? The Nature Conservancy races around the country struggling to save unique parcels of land like Hofmann, while at the same time the parties in charge of Hofmann are auctioning it off. Has anyone thought about how difficult it is to assemble from scratch a tract of forestland the size of Hofmann in the eastern half of the country these days? Answer? Virtually impossible. What kind of Bizarroland scenario are we being asked to accept here?
