As to be expected the article is rather shallow, but it did mention the
huge scope of the job: 60-80 million acres of our federal lands need

But they lost me when they mentioned "green certification" so I had to
leave a comment.
Why are many people supporting the FSC monopoly? If we have strong
forestry laws and they are strictly enforced, there is no need for
certification. It was only meant for large industrial forest lands.
