Hunter, Seymour Quoted in MPBN Article on Timber Harvest

Malcolm Hunter, a professor of wildlife ecology at the University of Maine, and Robert Seymour, the Curtis Hutchins Professor of Forest Resources at UMaine, were interviewed by the Maine Public Broadcasting Network for a report on the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands’ plans to increase the amount of wood it cuts every year. Hunter said he is worried about the ecological effects of increased cutting in mature forests. Seymour said he is bothered by the principles behind the harvesting increase, but believes the harvesting plan can be done sustainably.
