    I don't know where you live, and don't want to start an argument, but if you get on a mountaintop here in Oregon, you'll see it's got more trees than anyone would believe. A few facts that most of the population don't know: The trees that are cut down for houses, toilet paper, paper towels are HARVESTED trees. The companies grow the trees for that purpose...they're not cutting down trees for these purposes in the National Forest or on BLM land. They DO cut down trees in our area near housing developments, campgrounds, or near the highways to cut down on fire hazard. Now that being said......BLM and National Forest DO sell off land....THAT's what you want to stop. Near us, before the economy falling, they sold off a huge area of land....in such a large "plot" that no single person could buy....a developer bought it and decided to put in a resort....a resort that the normal people would not be able to afford. The plans were to sell the LOT for $250,000 and on up!!!! THAT's what I'd like to see stopped.....

    off my soapbox now...:-D

    I live in an area they just keep cutting down trees for shopping malls, parking lots, and more businesses that don't stay in business. It is sad to see buildings empty where trees use to be.

    I lived in the country and we had trees, trees, and trees.

    Washington DC and metro area is known for its beautiful big old trees. Well, with all of the fallen trees, broken electrical lines during the winter & summer storms, they are going thru the city and literally cutting the entire side of the tree closest to the power lines. It looks horrible, I will take some pictures & post tomorrow. Huge trees cut to the main stem on one side. I truly understand why after spending a week with out electric in 100+ heat but put the power lines underground would be easier and safer. It took them 10.5 hours to destroy one side of one tree laying wire actually goes faster with that machine thing and its a more permanent solution. Oh well!

    lol, this was just way to funny, wouldn't it make a neat quilt for the outer world, in a more serious way to help encourage all the treeing cutting to slow down and reallize we have enough already, but yet in a funny way also? Love It! Thanks! :)

    An interesting thought. I don't want anyone to get me wrong.....I don't like clear cutting of the forests. I've seen what's been done in the past....and I'm glad they're taking a more valid interest in preserving our forests. I also get ticked off when I see new buildings going in when others are sitting empty......I'd love to see some of the old houses in Salem - near the capital building -- that I saw in the old books. Too many beautiful old homes being torn down.
