Hi John and others,

The point about old growth trees is that they have been sequesting carbon for 
hundreds of years and although they may be carbon neutral in their old age they 
are storing the carbon collected over decades.  By clearing these old growth 
trees large amounts of carbon are released and it would take a large number of 
young trees many years to compensate for this release.
