  3. Yes. Lumber is used in housing. Most houses are framed by 2" by 4" by long pieces of lumber.

  4. So they only have two advantages. Paper and lumber/housing. They can create resources for human use.

  5. Right.

    I think the question is whether the logging industry can find new growth forests that will produce the same products -- but at slightly higher costs. My answer is yes.
