    No, it doesn't. Different trees have different growth cycles. Hard wood trees take 20-50 years to reach maturity. Softwood trees take an average of 8 years. That is why they can make tree farms. They grow fast enought to be a reliable renewable resource. Those are the trees being used. Why would you possibly want to make toilet paper out of hard wood? Doesn't recycled toilet paper already have enough splinters in it without making a hard wood product that's even worse?

    You know, you could prevent that with the use of google and some fact checking before jumping to conclusions. It only took me three minutes to find the link to the company site and a post on tree farms was provided already by Shodokan.

    Production of Paper

    Of course having stumbled across a documentry once on tree farming and pressurized woods made from them to replace the use of hard wood in products did teach me a little on the subject.

    i think we shouldnt cut down the trees because forest hold many types of animals and species we dont even know yet.
    like the rainforest, home to many different species more than 50% actually.
    and the plants in the rainforrest might hold a cure for aids. so why cut down what we havent even seen yet?

    ^^^You see this is why we have zoos and natural parks.

    The rainforest is home to nasty animals that humans really don't need. Princesslady I want you to live in the Rainforest for two weeks and see if you still think you shouldn't cut down the rainforest.

    Princess lady do you have a link to where it says the rainforest could have a cure for aids?

    omg. where do you think the animals come from? they come from other countries and are taken from there homes. and where are ther homes? FORRSET? NO DUH! and ima look for a link but if you have cable which most of us have, watch disacovery healh, had a documaentary on the rainforrest a few nifghts ago, and SCIENTIST say that many of the plants may serve as a cure for aids. they already use plants to cure other diseases we have now. they use the plant extracts to help bure our health problems so whyt dont you think you cant have a plant cure aids? and i dont wanna live in thew rainforset. it rains it's hot and it's poor soil. but i would love to see the animals.
