It costs more than you realize - mostly for preventing or dealing with the kind of shit everyone says they don't do or wouldn't tolerate. Nobody is saying the $ is managed wisely, but until you can personally guarantee there will be no dumping, fires, or environmental disasters, it'll cost $ to maintain. Even with volunteers they can't keep up with demand.

You're right, we shouldn't have to double pay - but douchebags shouldn't ruin stuff for everyone either. Get rid of them and you'll have your free forest.
