"Despite what developers will tell you about restoration, she said, once a piece of land is graded, the biologic organisms and understructure of the soil are destroyed. 'No one knows how to easily re-create that, short of years of hand-weeding. Leaving land alone doesn't work; the natives are overwhelmed by the invaders.' Spot bulldozing is common... even on land that is supposedly protected. 'Much of this destruction is done out of expediency and ignorance.' She believed people are unlikely to value what they cannot name." — Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods, quoting biologist Elaine Brooks
