“I’m okay with cutting down trees — I just don’t have an issue with it — but I’m not okay with cutting ’em all down. The industry tends to call environmentalists ‘radical.’ The reality is that 95 percent of the standing native forests in the United States have been cut down. It’s not radical to try to save the last five percent. What’s radical is logging 95 percent.

-Bill Barton, logger, Native Forest Council, If a Tree Falls
