    Old growth need to be preserved for many reasons; biological study, heritage, and respect for nature are a few reasons. There are many other newer growth forests that can be harvested before endangering old growth forests.

    Find in your own heart and human spirit, in your invisible connection with your past, to leave this magnificent forest to inspire and instruct us all. If you can’t do this remember what Ansel Adams told Ronald Reagan, when Reagan refused to see the bigger picture. “You know the cost of everything, and the value of nothing.”

    This forest has value that transcends all of us. It deserves to be leaft standing. We can prosper and still preserve it.

    Thank you.

    YES! we should save the forest! before we know it , we’ll be DEAD because we have no oxegen because people are selfish! they want BIGGER houses, more stores, and many more selfish things! we should be happy for what we have and stop wanting more and more and(wait for it…..)more!money is a problem because everybody wants it. we should be thankful. things were meant to be used and people are meant to be loved. the world is coming to an end because things are being loved and people are being used. that is all

    I sent it away once. I also hope that this action will help to ensure that these trees are not precipitated.

    Being short sighted is a quality common among business and nations. It is up to us as citizens to stand up for what is just. Go Les!

    This saddens me. I am 15 and I have always loved the outdoors and one day when I become a man I wish to explore the wilderness and develop skills that will help me live off the land and respect my surrounding more then I do now and one day I wish to show these things teach my children she skills I developed. But things like these prevent me from doing so. I cannot teach my children these skills and to respect there environment if its just pollution and wasteland. :( very sad.
