Image Title: [Growth and death in a Douglas fir forest.]
Image Caption: A Douglas fir forest is not static. Growth and death occur on the same acre. Tree farming seeks to save the values in forests before the trees sicken, die and fall to the ground as waste. Nature is a far greater waster of forest material than is the logger and topples untold millions of board feet to the ground in old growth forests not harvested when ripe.
