    Excerpt from Forest Biodiversity and Clearcutting Prohibition Act of 1993: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Specialty Crops and Natural Resources of the Committee on Agriculture, House of Representatives, One Hundred Third Congress, First Session on H. R. 1164; October 28, 1993; Serial No; 103-43

    I would like to emphasize for those who are listening - I know the subcommittee members know this - but when we are talking about national forests, we are talking about forests owned by the public, owned by average Americans; and there is no question in anybody's mind, if you sit and talk with anyone even remotely in volved with this issue, that the average person does not want to see us clearcutting our forests, that if people want to make money by going into the national forests owned by the public and harvest ing logs, they Should do it according to a system of management that is prescribed in such a way that is consistent with the public interest as well as the economic interest of the timber industry.

    In recent decades, the Forest Service has depleted this country's biodiversity in nearly 70 percent of our Federal commercial timberland through various forms of even-age logging.

    What remains of our vanishing forest biodiversity is mainly in our Federal forests, and most of that is in the remaining 30 percent of our Federal commercial timberland not yet turned into even aged fields. Even if, by other measures, we preserve millions of acres of the Federal timberlands in the Pacific Northwest, only 7 of the 48 forest ecosystems found in our National Forest System will be protected.

    Enactment of the bill before the committee would save examples of all existing forest ecosystems, of which there are 48 nationwide, almost seven times as many as would be served simply by dealing with the issue in the Northwest.

    After 8 years of litigation, three environmental groups won a pre liminary injunction against the Forest Service on May 12, 1993, to ban even-aged logging in the national forests in Texas.
