* AlternateAesopInterpretation: ''Sustainable'' logging, rather than no logging whatsoever. Had The Once-Ler planted one new Truffula tree for every tree he cut down (i.e. deforestation plus mass ''re''forestation instead of only deforestation), the environmental impact would have been greatly reduced. If nothing else, the Once-Ler's company wouldn't have run out of trees to cut down.

** The fate of the town in the TV Special - once the Truffula trees were gone, they picked up and moved to brighter pastures, as any GhostTown in the Western US[[note]]Established during the Gold Rush in the 1800s[[/note]] can attest to being TruthInTelevision.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: The Once-ler does make a valid point when he says that closing his factory will mean laying off 100,000 workers and be detrimental to the economy. Even the Lorax concedes that this would be an extreme solution.

** The Once-Ler himself counts. His role as antagonist is a lot more ambiguous when compared to his abusive family and O'Hare, both of whom come off as a DesignatedVillain. The movie could have easily done away with him without losing any conflict.
