When we talk about forests, the first picture that comes to mind is a spread of greenery that gives fresh oxygen. The evolution of industries and technology in recent years has significantly damaged the ecological balance and damaged the natural habitat. And this damage can only be reversed by investing in proper forest management and letting trees take the onus of recreating the ecological balance.
Maintaining the Oxygen-Carbon Dioxide Cycle
Usually, when a deciduous tree works for a season, it can produce enough oxygen for 10 people to inhale throughout the year. In return, they inhale carbon dioxide that’s what will rectify the damage industrial damage did to the climate. Moreover, using reclaimed and recycled timber can also help minimize the burden of harvesting timber from healthy trees, supporting a sustainable environment. In other words, investing in healthy and sustainable forests can help rectify the damage greenhouse gases did to the climate.
Tackling Irresponsible Logging
Besides forest health, irresponsible logging has been another concern today. With the demand for timber growing, some companies have been putting greed over environmental consciousness. Due to this, various illegal loggers have been actively cutting down healthy trees. However, promoting sustainable forest management can help minimize such activities by ensuring the requirements for timber and the health of trees are maintained.
You can also contribute towards the ecological balance with a private native forest if you have enough land. But before that, you should go for forest assessments to know the best approaches to investing in a healthy green belt in your region.
