    That's my understanding too. Logging is essentially irreversible in the sense that it takes decades for the trees to grow back (I've written a number of articles on Huffington Post on this subject). In Mexico, they can prevent further logging and my understanding is that this is pretty effective now (though tragically late in the game).  I've also read that local people need to be given more financial incentives to leave the trees alone. By contract, in the U.S., planting milkweeds is easy and fast.
