This Tree Cutting Machine Is Monstrous

It's like Optimus Prime, if Optimus Prime was bent on deforesting the Earth, rather than saving it :-)

I prefer the animated classic to the live-action Ferngully, personally. :squirrel:

#2 that one has another pair of wheels but doesn't really look any different. This one here gives a better impression...

It's not the machine that's monstrous. It's the system that demands perpetual/infinite growth. If we cut and sell 1km squared of forest this year, next year we need to cut and sell 3% more and next year another 3% more and then another and another because shareholders ! What happens when the market is saturated with wood products ? Well, we lower the quality so everything is less durable and we consume more.

#5: That's not how the market really works. Demand stays pretty much the same all the time and the only real variable is cost. Harvesters cut the costs dramatically in developed countries. Instead of 20 lumberjacks, you only need one tech-savvy one.

#6 I pulled 3% deforestation annual growth out of my a$$ and I'm quite sure your ~0% comes from the same source. With few exceptions, reforestation is lagging badly behind deforestation all over the globe and as I said above, the problem is not HOW you cut forests.

#8: I totally agree with the HOW part, but it has more to do with sustainability than market behaviour or the techical solutions. For example Finland is a major player in the lumber and paper industries but our deforestation rate is less than 0.02% per annum and steadily slowing down even further. Basically all lumber harvesting is done using these machines nowadays.
