    Description

    The fact that trees grow makes the extraction of logs and bolts from a forest different from the extraction of ore from a mine. Every mine has a limit, and sooner or later it must be abandoned, either because the vein has run out or because the mine has become too costly to operate. But a properly managed forest - one where cutting maintains production - never becomes exhausted by harvesting operations alone.
