A Solution For Dead Trees, Wildlife

Editor:

I certainly understand and sympathize with those who are primarily concerned with harvesting the dead timber in the national forests before it deteriorates to the point where it no longer has any economic value.

I also understand and sympathize with those who are primarily concerned with the needs of wildlife.

Perhaps the concerns of both groups could be met by simply having the harvesting process leave one dead tree for every two to four acres to be used by woodpeckers and other cavity-nesting birds.
