    ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN has brought a raft of "ecologists" and "environmentalists" to our door, and they are chock full of questions about the future of our swampland ecosystem. To most of them, swamps are "water, snakes, muck, brush, alligators, and mosquitoes." But to the forester and land manager, the swamp is a beautiful habitat for wildlife and an important source of veneer logs for the "fruitwood" furniture industry.
