It gets a rise from me,too.
I thought the post was going to advocate cutting the trees down and
sequestering the carbon by burial or somesuch (in order that another
crop of trees could be started for sequestration purposes).
Talking about habitats degraded by agricultural use (eg alpine hillsides
grazed bare) isn't a convincing argument for me!! This is just evidence
that nature is patient and persistent. Once we take the pressure off,
nature rebounds with considerable resilience. Just because the
resulting biomes and "landscapes" are different from what has been
there for the past several centuries, doesn't mean it isn't OK -- beautiful,
