But because it's the first step in a successional community, and it's easy
to jump start... why not? Jeez... Just think... In 10 years they can tell
the farmers to just stop mowing their prairie buffers in the fall and the
trees will come in ;) Then it won't seem like such a stretch to "do
something" about their run off. They're currently thinking they need to
have an old growth forest appear overnight, so why bother, right?
