Investigation of the detrimental effects on the environment of modern forestry extraction.
Modern forestry extraction practices see one man able to remove amazing swathes of pine trees using complex but brutal machinery. In the process, the forest floor is ripped up and will take decades to recover. Not just peat bogs that hold peat as most of our pine forests are grown on peat. Older, but much slower and labour intensive methods were considerably kinder to the environment with little disturbance to the forest floor and the bonus of early replanting.
