As with any heated topic, people fall into a wide spectrum when debating issues. This is also true for loggers. Many want to explain to the world that the industry provides many important benefits to the environment.
Thinning the forest is very important, which I experienced personally, when my father's cabin was nearly lost to a raging forest fire. The forest was so dense and full of dead fall, a lightning strike set it running, destroying many off the grid homes where my father lives. There is less competition among trees, more light hits the ground cover so grasses and soils can thrive.
I also witnessed so many people insisting on popping up cabins throughout the forests, right in the trees, then expecting lives to be put on the line to save their dwellings which were built in overgrown forests, needing just a hit with dry lightning to set it ablaze.
Most importantly, the small mountain town we resided in lost two lumber mills. Families were destroyed financially, having to move away and pull their children out of the only home they ever knew. There are good people working long, hard hours in this dangerous industry - and mouths to feed when the day is done.
Logger gifts for the "activist" loggers are those who are angry at the criticism, fed up with hypocrisy (criticize logging yet build a new home in a new subdivision instead of moving into an empty house), tired of those not understanding they use the products made from logging or pulp. Some of them are just plain fed up.
Enter the "tree hugger" vs. logger dynamic...yep, these gifts are for those loggers! Let them blow off steam and get a good laugh with one of the gifts on the right!
