In Fall From Heave 2 you have ancient forests as well as normal forests. Ancient forests are better, providing an extra food. In both Civ 4 and Fall From Heaven there are lumber mill that can be built in forests providing one production and leaving the forest.

Is there any disadvantage to building a lumber mill in an Ancient Forest? Is there any penalty as follower of the nature religion for doing so?

So you can't build lumber mills on Ancient Forests.

To quote Kael

Partially roleplaying (we didnt like that the nature worshipping religion was able to chop down trees) but it was a balance decision as well. Ancient forests are already pretty cool, they would be to good if you could also drop a lumbermill on the tile and we didn't want the Fellowship to be an economic powerhouse.

Apparently you can have this if the lumber mill was there first. I found this as I used culture to take tiles with lumber mills, and of course my culture caused those forests to become ancient. – C. Ross Oct 8 '10 at 19:35
@Cross Yes. You can't build a lumber mill on an Ancient Forest, but a forest with a lumber mill can become one. – tzenes Oct 8 '10 at 20:39
