A group in Clackamas County Oregon called "Urban Green" pushing to pass a county ordinance that tells property owners how many trees they can cut on their lands. Im sorry, but think this is total bullshit. While their ideas and thoughts are practical and almost worth it, i really stress the keyword almost
. Part of the freedoms given to us by our founding fathers is freedom, and the right to personal property; i.e land. While your neighbor might hate you for clear cutting your property, i believe it is in your rights as a United States Citizen to do what ever the fuck you want to do on your property *within legal limits.
(*obivously not growing drugs, or building a weapons factory; but you get what im saying)
Here is the groups website and an article on what they are about.
