This is what disturbs me.& the trees...
they have to kill the trees too, right?
Yeah...didn't mean to start down the off-topic path, but this subject and the continued advancement of destruction and deforestation just pisses me off.Gonna go off topic here. But no the US is not. Deforestation is a world wide problem. For example Borneo an Island country has at current rates half of they're forests depleted where once they had a full lush prime jungle.
By 2020 they should be down to something like 30%

It is disgusting and there are better alternatives.
I do know that there are ways to do sustainable and responsible forestry.
Costa Rica is an example of recovery.
This article here shows they went from 20% cover to over 50% by implementing protection and eco tourism.
I don't want to go on too much... last thing I say is that there are alternatives I understand. Industrial hemp being the prime example that comes to mind.
Hemp as a textile material was used for ages until the marijuana prohibition that was put in effect by governments. Now its making a comeback I hear. I don't know enough about it but Hopefully it can be a viable industry to take the pressure off of the worlds forest ecosystems.
