Thank you for sharing this clip from Bob Taylor. It is impressive that he actually TALKED to the workers and CARES about the long term affects of harvesting wood. I hope he can influence other guitar makers and wood industries to follow suite. I know that orchestral musicians will seek out used instruments because the tonalities produced from older instruments/woods are more valued. But how many more of us buy cheap furniture from the Filipines and Indonesia because they are cheap at WalMart and Target? Whose national economy are we ruining by buying these? Do any lumber companies "reforest" ? Shall we all buy plastic Ovations and not worry about the hydrocarbons produced by those factories? Excuse my pessimism, but we can't win , either way.
