A forest sequesters carbon, produces oxygen, causes rainfall to be 
percolated to aquifers, provides habitat for insects, plants and animals. A 
forest without foresters provides no forestry products for humans. This is 
a waste of a valuable renewable resource. A forest held off-limits to 
humans provides no educational, recreational or spiritual opportunity. This 
is a waste.
