Wood being taken out of the forest
Every year an estimated 25 thousand pounds are taken out of the forest by visitors that fall in love with the beauty of the wood, or see the ideas of what the wood could do for them. These ideas go from just souvenirs, to jewelry, to house decor. This may seem harmless to some but in reality it is illegal to take the wood out of the fence and because of this there are car searches, rangers all around the park, contract stating you will not remove wood to be signed, as well as this engine the only national park that has a fence to protect it from the publics reach.
