Persnickety: It's enough to make you wanna defenestrate someone.
meat0918: Well, crap. Seems they count the monoculture tree farms as forested and not cropland.Best I can get without digging much further is 26 million acres are part of the private group called American Tree Farm System in some capacity Link with a total of 384 million acres of forest. LinkSo only 6.7% is agribusiness tree farms. Not as bad as I suspected.

olddinosaur: Typical example of busybody meddling.Farmers grow the best crop for the area, but busybodies want them to grow something else----but DO NOT offer to make up the shortfall in revenue.Tell 'em to get a life.
mikefinch: Not much of a farm -- it takes 20+ years to harvest your product, and outside of herbicide to make sure advantageous trees don't force out the harvested species - and maybe some thinning if the trees came up to close together - they don't get fussed with much. Every effort is made in modern forestry to return the forest as close to its previous state as possible.
Cobataiwan: Coffee also takes 20 years to start going. Plantation is the better word I suppose.
