    The demand for natural gas has increased in the past decade and that has lead to exploration into unexplored areas of the United States. These explorations lead to the Fernow Experimental Forest in West Virginia. The Fernow is well known for long-term Silviculture, watershed, and ecological research (Kochenderfer 2006). As the preparation drilling a total of over 700 hundred trees were removed. During hydraulic fracturing which is a process in which fractures in rocks below the earth's surface are

Although CNG's combustion does produce greenhouse gases, it is widely considered a more environmentally "clean" alternative to conventional fuels; plus, it is much safer than other fuels in the event of a spill (natural gas is lighter than air, and disperses quickly when released).
