    • Fun fact about modern logging, they replant the trees. Most people who say they go paperless think it's better but not really because that means a drop in demand for wood which means that land gets used for something else. Unless something like this post happens, logging might be a better option

    • I think we should celebrate this by having a big party. For the party, we will need a large amount of paper and wood, say, 400,000 acres worth. I’ll let you know when it’s cut down so we can start.

    • Little known fact: there are more trees today than there were 200 years ago. Logging companies go through a process called "replenishing", where they plant 3 trees for every one they cut down. This ensures that their inventory will grow with demand while simultaneously not leaving forrest barron.
