What was it like to witness the cutting down of the last remaining

Were they too in denial? Did they say that sparing those last trees
was too much of a sacrifice to a culture based on using wood?

US Department of Agriculture reports that in 1630, there were 1 billion acres of forest in the US. In 1907 the number had dropped to 15 million. In 2000 they reported 747 million acres of forest.

Which proves nothing but I thought it was interesting.
