What CBD is afraid of

This has already been presented to the USFS and it is gaining alot of traction as a way to put people back to work and get the forests cleaned up.

Bebe,

This was only a very small part of what was presented to many of the USFS Rangers here.

The secret is to keep each part of this as a small business.

I saw this last year on "Modern Marvels" (Logging Episode).

It has sensors on each foot & can tell if the ground is soft/if the foot is needed to be repositioned....

Some more.

Purpose built machinery to economically and profitable thin a forest while keeping soil compaction and damage to the remaining stand to an absolute minimum.

Both of these machines can be towed behind a pick up.

The absolutely hilarious part of all of this is the fact that the people the eco most want to be like (Europe) are freaking laughing their asses off at them because of the level of stupidity the eco's are bringing to forest management.

And finally toss this in at the end.

A small automated pellet mill that can be operated by 1-2 people.

Small Pellet Plant Making Wood Pellets - YouTube


Widespread biomass use in years out according to one of our illustrious Congress critters.

$1.5 trillion dollar "stimulus" and divide it into $250,000 grants for people to get things like this started and around 12 million people would have went back to work very quickly.

Europe will be importing 325 million tons of pellets by 2020. So much for a global economy huh?

Hell even the down ond out farmers in this country could have got in on this as switchgrass requires very littel energy to grow and harvest .It only requires standard bailing equipment to harvest it.

Guess the eco really DON'T want to "save" the environemtn after all.

Got an invasive tree species? Follow this plan and it now goes from something to spend money to remove and becomes profitable to remove it. The Royal Paulowina tree comes to mind along with the Chinese Tallow down in the Southeast.
