Astounding ignorance. Trees make good firewood or wood pulp.

Prof Calder said the study showed that there might be some benefit with plantations taking up water in most years, and reducing annual floods, but in major 1-in-20-year floods, the benefits were "negligible".

Um, not much survives a 20 year flood. This is overstating the obvious, and ignores the benefit of having trees reduce erosion, which would conserve valuable topsoil.

Some of us learned that in basic Environmental Science merit badge class at summer camp..
