	Perhaps, if lumber were priced to cover the true cost to the Forest of 
removing it from the land, people would buy less of it, so less would be 
cut. But that would have meant less people working as timber cutters in the 
recent past, but there would probably have been more jobs in the timber 
industry in the future than there will be now.
