So a Czech company is going to clear cut south Texas mesquite to help European utilities? "You take our trees leaving us a desert, and we'll give you a supply of energy." Sounds like a fair deal.
Did you read the full article? They're only harvesting within a 100 mile radius of Corpus. So they're not turning South Texas into a desert and more importantly, they leave the root system intact and within ten years the tree is ready to be harvested again. Once they're done (whenever that is) harvesting the trees, they'll all grow back. No harm, no foul.
