Lynx, deer heard in North Woods debate roles

Lynx are having a tough time due to the reduction in clear cuts. Both lynx and neotropical songbirds depend on early successional growth. Such growth succeeds either fire or clear cuts. We put fires out now and we have stopped virtually all clear cuts due to Son of Compact.

OK; Raise your hands. How many think Augusta knows best? After 100 years of commercial forest management of much of Maine by the owners, does Augusta really think they are better at managing the resource?

Hell no, but with some of the new ideas being taught in forest management classes, things are changing on that side too. The knowledge that ethical, experienced logging contractors have will disappear since there are too few young people going into the profession. We'll be stuck with the "eco-friendly" method of forestry. God help us. :(

That's what Angus King and Evan Richert tried to do by shutting down all schools in the Unorganized Territories. They figured if the young loggers left the old ones would die off soon enough. It didn't work because Unorganized Territories United shined the bright light of truth on them. Then they defeated the COMPACT twice. "Son of Compact" was worse than the COMPACT and it has already driven many medium size operators out of business. They killed it. It's dead. Forestry and logging as we knew it is gone. Every single Maine paper mill has sold its timberlands. If you can't plan, you can't manage and the greens in Augusta don't want a managed forest. They want no human use. That's where we are headed.
