China Forestry Group NZ and Taranakipine sawmill in New Plymouth have signed a supply agreement today that supports long term wood processing in New Plymouth and employment for the workers at Taranakipine. Te Wera forest is very steep in parts, requiring specialist equipment and personnel.
My aunt lived within the city limits on a large plot of land that was quickly eroding off into a valley behind her property. She decided to plant one hundred trees along the area to keep her land from shrinking any further. She had always loved the foliage of red maple trees in the fall, so she chose these for her personal afforestation project.
Since they grow quickly, they were an ideal solution. They can get about sixty feet tall, so their roots have to run deep. That is a good thing when you need them to hang onto your soil for you. They do afforestation and when the trees grow, harvest them and do it all over again.
I think it's great because they are growing and using their own trees rather than hundreds of years old trees that are found in our state naturally. There is no way that we are going to stop needing lumber and wood.
Considering how much paper we consume here in the U. Afforestation is a great and conscious way to do that. The reason that we do any forestation at all is because that piece of land is at present cannot grow and maintain trees. It might be because the trees have been cut down or because the soil has eroded to the point that it cannot grow plants any longer.
Even though in the past, these places might have looked very different, today they are basically in the same or similar condition. So when you think about that, you will see that afforestation and reforestation are really not that different.
Both afforestation and reforestation involves planting trees, but it seems to me that afforestation is more difficult to manage and sustain. For example, the article mentioned afforestation efforts in desert lands.
This is not an easy thing to do because the land there is naturally not suited for tree growth. If the soil had been right and there was enough rainfall, trees would have grown there naturally.
I feel that afforestation is riskier and more costly than reforestation. With reforestation, at least we know that the soil is suitable and with some additional support, the previous trees and forests can be replaced.Human interventions that influence soil organic matter.
Various types of human activity decrease soil organic matter contents and biological activity. Forests are a safety net, especially for the poor, but they continue to disappear at an alarming rate.
An increase in afforestation, a slight decrease in deforestation and the natural expansion of. Afforestation is the process of establishing a forest on land where there is no forest, by planting trees or sowing their seeds and caring continually until the trees grow collectively as a whole into a forest as planned.
Afforestation is already practiced on a wide scale, and represents an important high-carbon land use.
It produces products of critical importance, and can help reduce pressure on intact forests. Though not a "silver bullet," it is an essential component of land-based mitigation efforts. Preliminary study on the drivers of deforestation & potential for REDD+ in Zambia Republic of Zambia Ministry of Lands, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection.
What we need is more pledges of zero deforestation from both governments and industries, and it must be backed by action and diligence. Afforestation as a way to compensate clearing of existing forests (for any reason) .
