Growing Benefits From Trees
4/24/12 - 4:20 pm
We, the humans on this planet earth, can help our forest and its trees by thinning them out in order to give them more sunlight to flourish in. We also need to know when it is time to start some of these forests over by making very intensive harvests. (Sounds a little like gardening, doesn’t it?) Thinning and regenerating our forest will “grow its benefits” in providing a healthier environment, a more diverse habitat for the critters, a prettier open space and a better filter for water and air impurities such as carbon.
Who in fact owns the “forest”? – It’s you! 2/3rds of it is owned by small (average parcel size is less than 17 acres), non-industrial landowners and most of the rest is owned by us all, in the form of publicly owned land. It is our responsibility to steward it for the future generations of humans and critters!
If you want to help us in this effort, contact us at our office in the center of the Catskill Region – Arkville, NY [845-586-3054, M-F, 9-4] Ask for Jim, Ryan or Michele.
