I ask because in a discussion recently someone suggested there should be
one that is at a level that reflects the true environmental costs. And I
know from up front, in my face, personal experience, that there IS an
extraction tax charged on timber removal. And timber is a renewable
resource. Granted it takes a few years to replace trees that are cut, and
the land owner must replant in order for that to happen in any thing like a
timely manner (I do replant my land).
It would seem to me to be grossly unfair for tree farmers to be required
to pay an extraction tax and those who own oil and gas wells as well as
coal mines and mines where metal ores are taken out, to NOT pay such a tax.
