Mr. Green, thank you for answering in terms of forest cover instead of tree numbers. Like many other conservationists in the upper Midwest, including Wisconsin, I've been responsible for cutting down hundreds of trees and shrubs. But those trees and shrubs were invading and degrading native prairie, wetland, and oak savanna ecosystems. Removing them restored those natural areas to better health.

More people need to learn that to help the environment, removing the wrong trees from the wrong places is just as important as planting and/or protecting the right trees in the right places. Thank you for helping that education process.
