Readers give forestry the thumbs-down

The Herald (Gisborne Herald) web poll last week provoked a strong response on the positive and negative impacts of forestry on the region, and most people who responded feel the bad outweighs the good.

The question was “Do you think the benefits of forestry to the region outweigh its negative impacts?” A total of 719 people responded. Of that number, 580, or 81 percent, felt the negatives outweigh the benefits and said ‘‘no’’. Just 18 percent (126) see it the other way and said ‘‘yes’’. You can check out some of the comments from the survey respondents here.
