Instead of just letting a bunch of rotting trees be burned and spread disease and insects, it is better to chop them down and compost them into the soil or let them rot in the forest. There might be a way to process them into a usable product like cardboard boxes. There is nothing wrong with chopping old forests and replacing them with slow growing trees that will grow for the next 100 years. Trees like Oak, white pine and red pine.
