I think Forrest has said that it could possibly be reversed engineered from the HOB. What do you want --an adorable pancreas? And it alleviates the burden for our government. And if we have any flaw, it's that we make other countries feel bad because our awesomeness is so overwhelming. Evangelical Christians and Mormons. A dense metal and a heavy one. Controversy isn't always bad for our purposes -- when we take a stand and become known for it, there are those who are drawn to us because of it.
Harvests during this era were the most complete ever made in the area, clearing nearly every accessible tree of every size. The once vast forest of the Allegheny Plateau was almost completely removed, leaving barren hillsides as far as the eye could see. Many large forest landowners in Pennsylvania and other northeastern states simply abandoned the land and moved West in search of new forests.
The land left behind often ended up on delinquent tax rolls, prompting a financial crisis for rural counties. The bare soil and logging slash made floods and wildfires a constant danger. In , the United States Congress passed the Weeks Act , allowing the federal government to buy land in eastern states for the establishment of National Forests.
The Allegheny National Forest was established in The land was so depleted that many residents jokingly called it the "Allegheny Brush-patch". Some worried the forest would never recover. But with low deer populations, a new forest quickly grew.
This forest was different from the previous one because conditions were now different. Shade-tolerant, long-lived trees like hemlock and beech gave way to sun-loving, shorter-lived species like black cherry, which readily germinated on the bare sunny ground. Cherry , red maple , black birch , and sugar maple became common species in the understory. Today many of the Eastern National Forests are primarily second-growth and different in character from National Forests in the West created from huge reserves of largely virgin forest.
In the Allegheny National Forest, the trees are roughly the same age because they started growing about the same time and the Forest Service continues to manage the land through a silvicultural system known as even-aged management—a practice very closely related to clearcutting.
An old-growth forest of hemlock and beech once stretched along northern Pennsylvania, but heavy logging between and left only pockets of that early forest in places like Hearts Content. Since the Forest Service began to manage the Allegheny National Forest in , a different forest of hardwood trees like black cherry that are more valuable as a timber product was established through the use of herbicides and selective fertilizing.
This weeded out the "undesirable" native trees while allowing the black cherry tree to thrive. The Forest Service brought new concepts in forest management to the Allegheny Plateau, multiple benefits and sustainability.
The Organic Act of introduced the National Forest mission: On these lands, seedlings for tomorrow's forest are the focus of forest management activities.
Watersheds are managed to ensure clear water for fisheries like trout and clean drinking water for all. Over time, various laws added other benefits like wilderness, heritage resources and grazing to the original idea of watershed protection and continuous timber. The Multiple-Use Sustained-Yield Act of recognized outdoor recreation, wilderness preservation, and habitat for wildlife and fisheries. The motto "Land of Many Uses" captures the National Forest goal of a healthy, vigorous forest that provides wood products, watershed protection, a variety of wildlife habitats and recreational opportunities, not only for today, but in a sustainable way so future generations can enjoy these benefits, too.
When the Allegheny National Forest was established in , the immediate challenge was nurturing the young trees growing amongst logging slash on the recently cleared hillsides. Because of such heavy logging and mining, wildfires, floods and erosion were a threat. With care and a general absence of overt human interference and manipulation, the forests grew. Since they started growing at roughly the same time, most of the trees in today's second-growth forest on the Allegheny Plateau are the same age 70— years old.
Between and , the young forest grew and evolved from openings to young forest to maturing forest. Each stage in forest development brought different benefits for people, wildlife and plants. Like a community, a forest is healthiest and offers the most benefits if it contains a variety of ages and species of plants and animals.
Young forests offer diverse vegetation like seedlings, saplings, wildflowers and berries. Deer, grouse, songbirds and other wildlife thrive with the abundant food and cover. Rapidly growing trees soak up carbon, add lots of oxygen to the atmosphere, and protect soil. Taller trees shade streams, helping to regulate water temperature for aquatic life. By the s, the forest began to take on an appearance familiar to us today. The older trees provide acorns, cherries, and beech nuts for bear and turkey.
Birds find sites for nests in the leafy tree crowns and plants like trillium prefer the filtered light of the maturing forest. In the s, the Forest Service gradually resumed timber harvesting under strict research-based guidelines to ensure sustainability for future generations. Abundant browse led to a dramatic increase in the deer population, which peaked in the s and again in the late s.

Tami Murphy, search angel, made contact with him in 5-? Phyllis, my birth mother, had falsified her last name to Keller by omitting the letter n in Kellner, changing it to Keller. Ray Klein admitted to knowing her in school, but did not reveal anything else to Tami at that time. I would like to resume the search for my birth father. Due to the fact that my grandmother iis aged, please do not press the Kellner family for information-they have no more to give regarding my birth father.
They emigrated to Israel in the late 60's and are unavailable for the most part. They have no more information regarding my paternity than I do- Ray Klein out of Miami Lakes, Florida, will be of more use than anyone-he may even be my father after all. Tami was going to do further research regarding his relationship with my birth mother. He is married and has a family. I just want to rule out the possibility he is my birth father, and leave no stone unturned.
He was, after all, the key to finding Phyllis R. Kellner-Wucher, my birth mother.
