Tim, you gotta remember, nature always grows back...you just gotta travel a little time.

No, nature doesn't always grow back. Species that once go extinct are forever gone. Granted, these forests are likely to return - if allowed.

But these forests are being converted to agriculture, and managed as such. In such a system, the biodiversity is dramatically reduced. The tiered-forest systems are not replaced, the O2 generation capabilities are reduced, the soil depletion rates increase, there is increased susceptibility to infestations and disease.

It's like comparing free range animal husbandry to feedlot operations.
