Miles / United Statesflaf


 

My name is Miles Pennington and I'm from the United States and I'm doing this for elllo.org. My question is are you a tree hugger?

And my answer would have to be definitely. I'm a tree hugger because I lived in the State of Washington for awhile and I saw what clear-cutting can do where they ... down the sides of the highways they leave trees for about ten yards and if you go past that ten yards, you see the effects of clear-cutting, which totally deforests the whole mountainsides and destroys habitat for a whole range of animals. Another reason I'm a tree hugger is because there are a lot of alternative things we can do rather than using wood for paper and other products. Hemp is a good alternative and it can be grown a lot faster and so is something called switchgrass and that can be grown a lot faster and a lot more cheaply and produces products that are better.
