Ecosystem lost to mulch?

The use of cypress mulch is still being debated (I blogged about it back in July), in the Orlando Sentinel and Sun-Sentinel. According to the article, environmentalists think cutting down cypress trees just to shred them for mulch is a waste of an ecosystem. Cypress loggers counter that it’s a sustainable business, though, because the trees regenerate.

Me, I try to use fallen leaves as mulch whenever I can.
