China has already cut down their forests. Now they are trying to restore them by banning the cutting of their forests in 2/3 of the country. Boats are taking Humboldt County logs to China. Now Freshwater Tissue plans to send the pulp of tan oaks and other trees to Asia. Keep in mind that China alone could deforest all of Humboldt County and still want more. I do not mean that this is what is happening, but I want to point out the enormity of the Chinese need for wood.
In fact, as tempting as Freshwater's original plan might have sounded to some, it is turning out not to be green or a tissue paper factory. It cannot claim to be green and not meet the standards of the Clean Water Action until 2014! They apparently are not planning to produce tissue for the U.S. market per green specifications! Where is the green tissue in Freshwater Tissue Co.?
