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.
