11. Doesn’t forestry cause water quality problems too?
When managed well forestry generally produces fewer water quality problems than pasture based agriculture. Forests leach very little nutrients and when they are growing they have no sediment or bacteria problems. The main problem with forestry comes at harvesting time when there is a risk of erosion, however harvesting practices are generally being improved.
