The Importance of Harvesting

The sale and harvest of forest products are critical steps in the effective management of forest lands.

Perhaps the best thing about forest products is that they come from a renewable and sustainable resource. Not only are wood products recyclable, durable and energy efficient; healthy, growing forests play a key role in absorbing carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen and storing carbon over time.

Cut trees can be used for many products including firewood, lumber, plywood. Leftover chips and sawdust are made into wood pulp for paper and other products. Bark can be used for landscaping.

Forest Clearing

Improves health – When logging is performed, the dead and diseased trees are harvested, thus preventing the spread of the fungi or bacteria which may damage other parts of the tree.

Minimizes competition among the trees – High densities of trees means there will be more competition for a limited amount of nutrition.

Provides necessary materials – Logging is a main source of timber which is used for a number of human needs such as providing construction materials, flooring wood, furniture, fuel for industries and homes, sports goods and other kinds of commodities

Safety – When a tree is old, weak or diseased, it becomes more prone to the various environmental factors such as wind and rain.

Allows more ground area to flourish – Lower densities, or early successional habitat, in the forest means that there will be chances of more new growth in the forest.

Diminishes the risk of forest fire – Since logging requires the cutting of trees, then it is likely that any fire started by a natural cause will not be able to spread rapidly.
