Slash has now dashed

LETTER

I, and probably others, have often thought that forestry companies should be mulching their slash behind them.

But of course with the Great God of Profit driving them (regardless of any good to the country), it was never going to happen. And now the slash has dashed and truly shown us its power.

Well, we have machines now that can deal with whole trees by themselves, so why not a machine to deal with the remains thereof? After all, Tolaga is going to need something like this.

I went to school with one of the benefiters and while I have not set eyes on him since, were it my problem now, I would be taking some of the said profits and fixing things smartly.
