Many arguments for saving the remaining old growth on the island focus on tourism, jobs, and the trees themselves. What is rarely discussed is the fact that these ancient forests are home to a huge abundance of wildlife. Each tree is an ecosystem within itself upon which uncountable living things depend. Cutting down one tree, is displacing thousands of living creatures. It is very much like genocide. It simply cannot continue. Not ONE more old-growth tree should be destroyed--rather, we should be protecting and encouraging their continued existence.
