The following recently published items deal with the destruction of tropical rainforests - apparently UNEP has projected that 98% of Indonesian and Malaysian rainforests will be cleared by 2022. Perhaps that may reduce the leach problem referred to in recent posts.

     I strongly oppose woodchipping, but it does differ from the
clearfelling and burning that goes on in Malaysia and Indonesia, with
resulting gigantic CO2 emissions, and replaced with Oil Palms which have
miniscule CO2 uptake.
In Tasmania, the trees are used for papermaking, and are replaced by native forest or plantation timber, which take up CO2 and in theory recycle
it after the paper endproduct breaks down.
The problem with all these great schemes is that they are very short on detail, like how much of the money goes to its intended purpose and how much
is sidetracked by corruption and bureaurocracy.
