Wisdom would dictate that the sale of property and timber should not occur at the bottom of the financial cycle. With inflation set to occur dramatically in the foreseeable future, would it not be best to hold onto Hofmann Forest for a few years and generate perhaps double the revenue available now?
Was the Hofmann Forest not given as a benefit to students in forestry and should not they have some say in regard to this sale? Was it not placed in trust with the university for the benefit of these students? Please think again about the decision to sell this treasure.
