Dear HCN,

Your issue on forestry schools was rich in academic intrigue, the personalities involved and what they are arguing over (HCN, 11/13/95). I strongly urge you to present another special issue on what that argument is about: the ecology and economy of healthy forests.

I also hope you will use the opportunity to teach readers more about the life of the land. We're ready for discussions of pathogens, disturbance regimes, red-backed voles. Scant few "outdoor" publications feature articles about wildlife anymore; they're all full of politics and essays. It's especially important for HCN to do so, considering the many newcomers to the West who need to learn the basics of life in the mountains, rivers and plains.
