Much like the farmer, loggers are their own worst enemies by over-producing a commodity. Now, the industrial TIMOs, REITs and other entities are not helping with this because their business model is built on high volume, low profit margin. So they encourage the logger to cut as much as they can while pushing silviculture on their property to faster growth and younger age classes. 

Anti-trust laws in America make regulating supply just about impossible. However, proof that it works both for the producer and consumer can be seen (as best I understand the situation) in Canadas maple syrup producers. 

I think many issues in forestry can be traced back to either over-production in commodities or under-production or utilization on federal lands. The pendulum of production needs to be better balanced.

The supply management systems in Canada (dairy, eggs, poultry, maple syrup) only benefit a closed, cozy cartel of producers and politicians.  The consumers get hosed and the cost to young folks who want to enter the businesses is absolutely prohibitive.
Robin Hood had it just about right:  as long as a man has family, friends, deer and beer...he needs very little government!
