Calculating the average Bud per tree ratio, times the quantity of the time to consume said Buds plus cutting down one tree, there will be new trees growing as fast as the old ones are cut down, so the plot will never be fully harvested, thus leading to an infinite loop an no definitive answer. -- "My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right."
