What is the role of trees?
Ellen Silverman
54:50
Statement 3 seems very different than the other 2. But we all do use lumber and paper, so it makes sense to consider.

Pat , with a good forest conservationist timbering can be benefiul
Carl DuPoldt
01:00:13
Clearcutting exposes the sol to erosion.
Dennis Morin
01:00:22
Disagree with all three statements
Melody J. Kraus
01:00:25
The first two statements are quite negative. The third is idealistic. All three are partially correct and partially wrong. All need explanation and details.

With statement 5, clearcutting does open up areas for other plants to grow allowing for levels of succession to occur.
Melody J. Kraus
01:00:43
Mother Nature can allow invasive plants to grow.
linda b

We need to manage our forests. Timber harvesting when done right benefits the forest.

Selective timbering exists and can help the health of trees.

I would like to know the source of information for the person who believes Statement #7.
Melody J. Kraus
01:08:18
Statement #8 portrays hunting only negatively.
bclas
01:08:24
"Many" animals go extinct? Which ones?
SteveMGDELCO
01:08:32
People have changed so much it is no longer pristine and original. Plus private ownership is hugh
linda b
01:08:34
Most forestland in PA is owned privately. There are many reasons for extinction.
pluta
01:08:41
Hunting isn't the only cause as there are many different animals go extinct to due to human involvement, such as polluting waters or introduction of invasives.
Instructor
01:09:33
Statement #9 is false, most of the land is privately held in PA
Ellen Silverman
01:10:08
I think with all the invasive plants and non native the forest will be quite different then it was in the past. Hunting seems to help some animals be maintained. I don't think that anyone has informed the land is own some much land.
