Why are old growth forests so different than a forestry engineered forest?
- The old growth forest includes trees over 1000 years old. Yes… OVER 1000 years. If that alone is not reason enough, then
- There is an ecosystem surrounding the trees that supports, wildlife, produces rain, oxygen, and clean water. Those are kind of important to humans, more important to all human beings than one individual looking for financial gain for himself and his friends.
- Trees talk to each other and they send nutrients to their seedlings.
- They are witness’s to 1000’s of years of human existence, and provided a home, comfort, oxygen, and a life supporting ecosystem.
