Implication:

The more side ditches, skidding roads and tracks of forest machinery, the more water is taken away rapidly into rivers causing floods in lower altitudes while the forest growth in the mountains become dehydrated.

Paradox:

Unaware of what we do we take water away from the mountains (dehydrating natural environment – forest growth, trees) while at the same time invest a fortune to construct dams in the lowlands so that we could protect human lives and property against floods.
