Letter: Another fate for beetle-kill pine

David Lambert, president
Hollywood Services

Just read the letter of Randy Piper regarding logs being cut down for defensible space. Although I’m pretty sure most of the timber being taken down is too small to be used for construction, I too believe just burning them would be wrong. My company, Hollywood Services, would gladly take them off of the town’s hands. We would even be happy to pay something for them. They would however, be burned in the future. We would merely cut ’em and split ’em and sell them as firewood.

If we save money on the cost of logs, we could charge less for firewood, which would save some taxpayers money. OK. it might only benefit a few taxpayers that buy from us, but it would save the town some money if we paid for the logs. Think about it.
