Plum creek purchased thousands of acres near my home in langlade county northern wisconsin ,much is being clearcut .they just applied for the largest subdivion permit in county history.They seem to only be interested in short term profit.Many of the cleercuts are young hardwood that they seem to greedy to let the trees mature into log timber.
just a wild idea but why not start a foundation and purchase land if you never want the timber cut? That way it wont ever change until an epic fire runs through it within the next 50 years. Then at least you can say you tried.
They will replant...in 7 years people wont notice.
