IT’S THE FOREST INDUSTRY,NOT LOGGING INDUSTRY
The Wall Street Journal ran a story in October headlined "Hot Commodity: Burned Trees.” The subtitle: "In Wildfire’s Wake, Loggers Eye Salvageable Lumber, but Rules Prove a Hurdle.” Unlike the now-infamous article The Journal ran in May that focused on a small sector of forestry – swamp logging in North Carolina and pellet markets – to paint the entire industry in a negative light, the October article was more balanced.
