Fun fact to yell about

The 386,000 miles of roads already built in America's national forests have generated $10 billion in maintenance costs for the US Forest Service. While spending nearly $49 million on logging programs and roads last year, the Forest Service received only $800,000 from timber sales -- a $48 million loss to the American taxpayer.

Logging destroys wildlife habitat, causes erosion, and costs you money.
