Trees are a Renewable Resource, and Forests?

However, forests are not. This is a important fact that many people misunderstand. It is also our mission to go out there and educate the masses. We hope that by reading this post you are able to understand more about trees, forests, and our environment. If possible, please share our post to any of your friends and family as that would help our cause a lot.

Trees are a renewable resource because of how we are able to plant them and harvest them, much like any other crop. They provide clean air and sometimes other kinds of resources like rubber and fruit. A forest, however, is more than just trees. It is filled with a variety of animals and organisms. When people talk about cutting down trees as part of a forest, but leaving the forest intact, this is a very strange statement as trees take up a majority stake in any forest.

Of course, it’s possible to cut and remove a select number of trees from any forest without entirely demolishing the forest, but the death of frees and their growth are part of how a forest works. Even the gaps between the canopy of leaves and branches are essential to the survival of certain species living on the ground of the forest.

Trees can take years or even decades to grow, and logging companies simply do not see the crucial need to replant trees after they are done with their commercial activities. As of now, the forest population on Earth has dwindled. You may be tricked by the lines of trees planted along the highways and roads, into thinking that they are abound and plenty, but that’s just an illusion.

Many people think that forests are an infinite resource. That we can never run out of trees because trees grow in forests, and forests are everywhere. It goes without a saying that the loss of trees and forest land has resulted in climate change over the past few decades. Most people are unaware of how much the human demand for wood and paper have created an worldwide ecological problem for our planet. If you truly know the full scope of things, you would be amazed at how much this problem has caused us, in terms of the environment and our planet’s sustained life.

All that’s said and done, there is still room for us to recover from this. Mistakes were made, but if we come together as a planet of people, cognizant about the problems our mother Earth is facing, we can turn this around. As much as deforestation has been progressing at shocking rates, we can still fix this.

We need to stop making excuses for ourselves and stop this greed that has driven our species into turning against the very thing that has provided us since the beginning of time.

If you truly believe that forests and trees are a renewable resource, we strongly recommend that you take some time to rethink, share this post with as many people as you can, and if possible, contribute to the Clear Water Carbon Fund and plant a tree yourself.
