Don't destroy the national forest please. If we just cut everything down, dig everything up and take it all then where do these people expect to find more resources. Get rid of everything to quickly and they will have nothing left to mine. Leaving these forests intact will allow children to learn about nature and at least learn to have some respect for it. The last thing we need is another city child who was taught to think that eggs come from the grocery store and not a chicken. We don't need more "city slickers" walking around texting every nine seconds while they walk, listening to beat-boxing music. If you put these kind of people in a life or death situation, most of them would panic and die. People in this country need to know the world around them better.
