h: of course they are paid. but the US cavalry that fought off the loggers, did so on orders by far sighted, altruistic officials.
The last giant trees of Canada ( always 10% in size of the US in every way) deserve the same protection. These trees are symbols of our hope for a long life; for life on this planet - period. they are the ultimate evolutionary survivors, producing the best offspring, with the thickest light bark, engineered like shuttle tiles.
It take millenia to create trees like that, minutes to kill, with modern equipment. gone forever.
Google Port Renfrew, looks like great surfing, black sky astronomy too. so:
identify your precious heritage in canada and post the army. name them "Methuselah tree" as they do in the US for the real old one.
retrain your loggers as computer programmers.
