I've got to disagree, the collection of a few plants by a collector is more
of a problem then commercial collection. A company is more easily regulated
than an individual and compared to the numbers of individual enthusiasts the
number of companies is infinitesimal. If every enthusiast < collector,
individual, fan , whatever you want to call them> went out and took what they
wanted the forests would be denuded inside a week. And thou it's popular to
blame THE BIG BAD BUSINESSES , we need to remember that they're collecting
those plants, cutting those trees , and any other thing you've got an axe to
grind about because WE < You ,Me , All of US> are buying their products.
