To the Editor: Roadless Rule our trust fund
October 11, 2018
Roadless areas are the cornerstone to the economy and
well being of southeast. The Roadless Rule is working for its designed purpose which is to ensure that the 99%
of the economy that depends on intact old growth forest is protected from the less than 1% that wants to clearcut it and export it round. It is a myth that old growth is a renewable resource. There is a limit to how many 300 yr. old logs
can be piled on a log ship bound for China. The ecosystem itself probably takes three times that long to mature. It’s simply unsustainable.
Alaskans had the good sense to outlaw fish traps....
