    What are these mysterious "invasives" throw out a name so we can check them out for ourselves. In my experience the invasives have a short influence and 10 years later they are gone. I think that the more »

    The more time I spend on the FSC site the more I'm convinced that they are a business. Their business is influence and membership. Their business is certification. The more influence they can exert th more »

    The Forest Stewardship Council is not a neutral non politcal oraganization. They are dependant upon contributions through the membership drive to succeed. They want to insert themselves into every arg more »

    Chris Matera represents an organization which is radical in it's perspective and uses the politics of fear. They do not attempt to or wish to participate in rational discussion. But I don't care. They more »

    Shady, all of the clear cuts shown are "managed" clear cuts done with approval of state employees who know a lot more about forest ecology than you or me. From what I know they are totally committed t more »

    Shady, the pics don't tell the real story from either a political or scientific perspective. I know it is hard to look at pictures like these and not say wow! but believeme when you hear the whole sto more »

    Geen, I can make such a reccomendation but I am hesitant to post any info on here which would allow you to contact me. I would suggest contacting the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and any of more »

    "• Replace forests with a surplus of clearings that grow into relatively impenetrable thickets of saplings" Contrary to what the above poster said...the "impenetrable thickets" are the home to an in more »

    Subcritical, I know there will still be harvesting in Massachsetts. Primarily this "conservation' bill is being sold with lies about clear cutting. That is what I am objecting to. I don't see why the more »

    Phinneus, I was aware of it in Maine where the paper companies want the quick regrowth of softwood. This does not happen in Massachusetts where the hardwoods are the desired regrowtn. Replanting and r more »

    I have to thank Forest Watch for the email addresses of Patrick so I can send him an email asking him not to approve this law. more »

    As for what happens to a forest left on it's own for decades. That is what our forests are now. If we go back a hundred years most of Massachusetts was open land and the forests without any help from more »

    When you really want to talk to someone about the clear cuts and the beavers. Stay away from Chris Matera. He has a political agenda which has nothing to do with talking about reality. If you folks do more »

    Jana, the beaver pond photos are some of the biggest lies. Forest Watch has no idea why the beavers left the pond. They didn't leave because the dam blew out. Beavers leave when the food supply is con more »

    Jana, Look at the clear cut photos on the Forest Watch site again. Notice how the cutting is in patches. Why? Because real experts in forest ecology recognize and reccomend that they be cut like that. more »

    Jana a photograph is a lie when it is used by organizations like Forest Watch and shown to people who are inexperienced and have no knowledge of forest ecology. The lie is that the picture represents more »

    I just looked at the pictures on the Forest Watch site. They are a flat out misrepresentation of clear cuts. Taking a picture of the same site even a year later would leave a completely different impr more »

    Jana I have visited dozens of clear cuts 10 years later and there is no "meadow" for invasives to choke out. Yes the density of the regrowth is not amenable to a hiker from Boston to walk through but more »

    A picture of a clear cut is soooo misleading as to be a lie. A recent picture of a clear cut should only be shown if you have a picture of the same spot taken 2, 3 5 and 10 years later. Chris Matera i more »

    I challenge governor Patrick to visit a clear cut. But wait until 10 years have passed. The truth is that the clear cut will be full of birds and other wildlife because the ecology and habitat is impr more »

    Typical approach by the urban element in our society that can't see the forest because of all the trees. The common thread is that they don't understand forest ecology or economy and they don't unders more »
