I agree with Carl the Hickory Creek Area is one of the few places left in the forest you can walk without tripping over an oil pump jack. If you haven't spent any time in this area I encourage you to do so you will find this little piece of forest the way the entire forest was prior to us screwing it all up.

The marks aren't for marking and selling trees, this is a designated wilderness area where that is forbidden.

There are special rules for grooming trails in wilderness areas. One of those rules being no power tools. Maybe you should go take a look? Then you might actually realize what a beautiful area it is or at least have an informed opinion about the area.

What's with the "sacred" crap? Is he a tree-worshipper? I like wilderness, but it's no church. This guy is nutso. I'm glad the newspaper ran the story because now the rest of us can see that this fruitcake and his followers ought not to have anything to say about anything that government does. They're trying to impose their tree-worship religion on us. It's not sacred; it's the woods!

Here's a solution: stop arguing about your petty, selfish, politically groomed (you're a tool) beliefs and admit the youth needs creative outlets. Or shut down and continue ti blame the kids and "liberals" for our crap social scene. Your choice.
