Premise – If you, I, lots of people use recycled paper it will save trees that would have been cut and processed for “virgin” paper.
So, lets say that we successfully “save” one-fourth of the trees that would have been cut… what happens? Let’s see. First timber growers find way more supply than demand.
Second, lowered demand reduces prices/profit. Third, excess inventory i.e. land is converted to higher profit pursuits like housing, mining etcetera. Finally, trees all cut to make room for progress! NO… replanting.
