You seem to imply that logging is taking place, or should be allowed, in 
the Oyamel forests. Yet, in another message  you said:

"logging of the forests in the 10,000 - 11,000 foot elevation range (the altitude 
where the monarchs overwinter) is simply not the custom in Mexico."

Are you proposing logging should be encouraged at the higher elevations where the Monarch overwinters?
