|"It was strangely like war. They attacked the forest as if it were an enemy to be pushed back from the beachheads, driven into the hills, broken into patches, and wiped out. Many operators thought they were not only making lumber but liberating the land from the trees."
~Murray Morgan, 1955
"It's not unheard of for old trees - big pine, firs, and cedars a thousand years old - to scream audibly when they're cut down. I've heard from loggers that the screams are disturbing at first, but as with anything else, you get used to it."
~Derrick Jensen, A Language Older Than Words
"Only 8 percent of the world's forests are under even nominal protection."
~World Conservation Monitoring Center, Global Futures Bulletin, November 1, 1998, and January 1, 1999
