The future of forestry

In order to have a sustainable forestry, as more and more of the original forests are cut,, we will become increasingly dependent on reforested areas for future use.  These re-planted forests will often be a specific species of wood chosen for it's market value.  The trees will be harvested when they grow to the most economical size  in terms of lumber value and transport of logs.  Original; first growth forests will become a thing of the past.
