What is gained by clear-cutting is too often gained at the expense of the future , for it entails the cutting of many small trees which would have eventually grown into profit. 22 Forest Community / 33 In my opmron, there should be no clear-cutting at all. Felling should be by selection of the best stems , the mature trees, or by a group selection method where a cluster of trees is removed to enable the surrounding trees to regenerate the land. Planting should be a last resort. Good forestry , good silviculture allows for natural regeneration and planting should only be done in the case of emergency, or on fresh land.

59 <:::r The productive capacity of the soil depends on trees, and agriculture is dependent on forestry: the one devoted to the planting, conservation, and harvesting of trees, and the other to grains, fruits, vegetables, and animals. Every farm contains land that will not produce farm crops, but no land is of such poor quality that it will not support tree growth. If the farmer will only recognize the value of the trees to himself and the importance of the forest to the country and to mankind in general, he will undertake to grow crops of trees with as much care and forethought as he spends on producing other crops.

A single tree has been recorded to have given off some hundreds of gallons of water every twentyfour hours and a forest of trees creates clouds of moisture above them. You have probably sat on a hillside [when] the air has been clear; you look out over a valley of woods with a breeze coming towards you from the sea. Cumulus clouds begin to form over the forest - you see them building up as you watch - and later they may come down as rain. If there was no transpired moisture from the land surface, the water droplet with its millions of companions that had been lifted from the sea would have gone on indefinitely until it reached the ocean again, where moisture was still coming up.
