An opinion piece in the summer edition of Silviculture Magazine argues that both sides of the timber supply dispute trivialize the inherent complexities involved in managing the forest:  “To propose logging sensitive areas to mitigate timber supply is driven by short-term thinking.  And the opposing position, that these areas are off limits, is animated by ideology more than a careful observation of events on the ground.”
The silvicultural perspective offered here regarding “the fallacy of static reserves” broadens understanding.
