Maintaining a sustainable forest is very important for planet Earth. Sustainable forestry aims to find a balance between human need of the timber or forest products with long-term sustainability of the forests and revenues from the timber products.
There are several ways to reduce the impacts of deforestation and other potential impacts using our forests. One method is called reforestation. Reforestation is the process of replanting trees. Reforestation is important for the animals in the forests and can help reduce erosion. There are many reforestation projections going on in the world today that help with biodiversity, help fight climate change, and other benefits. One such project in the United States is called the Urban Tree Project.
Other ways to reduce deforestation include reusing wood for another use. For example making a birdhouse from wood that was used to make a fence.
Prescribed burns help keep our forests healthy. A prescribed burn is set under specific “controlled conditions” to help reduce the frequency and the damage that occurs from natural fires. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a strategy used to protect the forests from pests like insects. Using this technique, the infected trees are removed. Examples in spruce budworm, and pine bark beetle.
