About a month after I received the finished books in the mail, a small wooded area just North of town was logged. The logger was careful and meticulous to go in and take the trees that were straight and tall. Some of the wood was set aside to be cut into firewood and the rest was stacked into long straight piles of consistent sized logs ready for shipment. Looking at the woods from several angles, once the debris is cleaned up, people driving by won't even be able to tell that the area was logged.
There are younger trees in the area that will now have the space needed to grow up. The landowner will have the freedom to come in and replant a diversification of sapling to fill back in the area. The natural cycle of life will continue to flow. Humans and their needs are part of that cycle of life. We need to be careful to clarify the difference between needs and wants. If our wants put too much demand on the natural order of life, then we need to set-aside our wants and scale back to our needs.
