    Europe was deforested by mankind and then here they came to the Americas to repeat the devastation. Helping and or "managing" the balance of what should be and was, instead of what shouldn't be and is has always been something we need on our planet . Left unchecked and unmanaged the Earth will go in the toilet with the let it be and let it do it's own thing attitudes , there is no way the earth will survive the long term effects of the left unchecked version of the natural circle of life .
    Destroying large swaths of natural timber to be replaced with pines is yet another example in a different part of the world on what is not good for the wildlife as well .
    the list is truly endless on the thoughtless destruction and or turning of heads to this problem that occurs over and over and has for an extended length of time.
    to each his own is my thoughts on how he or she wants to "manage" whatever property they own , but to be VERY sure , mother nature is WAY out of whack , with VERY few caring about what it might need to help take care of itself .....
    in my part of the world the used to be peanut farmers that the government subsidized basically stripped the area of nutrients need for the local flora and fauna to take care of themselves , they created huge swaths of waste lands that only grass can grow on "IF" you help it grow , and even the local fellas in the area know full well the lasting effects they put on the west Texas range land .management of the unnatural balance that was self inflicted is the key to putting things back right for the future generations to enjoy , sadly though many have a zero clue about how to do it and or care about doing it ....
    there is substantial cost and work involved to make right what is wrong and very few are interested in the "fix" .....just saying
    Your dissertation is very good on issues with vegetation (trees, crops, etc.) - lessons to be learned from the "Dust Bowl" my family dealt with. I agree with what you state. Animal wildlife is a different issue. No emogies added to be cute.

    Trying to restore habitat and improve it after mankind destroys it , for the wildlife to get back into full on flourish mode is quite difficult, finding the right minerals to restore the out of balance soil and adding native plants and brush back to the wasteland created by humans is a real tough job , full on observation and supplemental minerals , food supplies ,and water sources with cover added are key …..
    Am about to drill a well to add the main ingredient we lack on our place soon , it’s only 6,000 greenbacks and then the added cost to create the pond …..no worries though, the cost is well worth the viewing opportunities it creates and the splendor of what used to be that follows such endeavors, choosing to not do anything to help a heavily burdened environment is not me ….
    And in the end , the recreational activities that follow this train of thought are almost endless as well …..
