Outlandish slaughter

Document Actions
Dear HCN,


In Ed Marston's review of Char Miller's book, Gifford Pinchot and the Foundation of Modern Environmentalism (HCN, 3/18/02: Will the real Gifford Pinchot please stand up), he states that "the Forest Service, safe within the Department of Agriculture, went on to slaughter the national forests after World War II." How outlandish! If so, why does HCN and others call for thinning of national forests because of too many trees per acre?
