Reforestation USA Today for Healthier Communities & Prosperity Dance Tomorrow

Updated on January 30, 2013

Proven Benefits of Forestry for Healhier Community & Prosperity

Forests are very important to the economy and well being of the people of Virginia. Same is true for our neighboring state of N.C, and to lesser extent but important in neighboring states of TN and WV, and possibly few others.

For example, In the country of Senegal, on the western coast of Africa, a movement headed by youths has helped to plant over 6 million mangrove trees. The trees will protect local villages from storm damages and will provide a habitat for local wildlife. The project started in 2008, and already the Senegalese government has been asked to establish rules and regulations that would protect the new mangrove forests.

Similar initiatives, often triggered by worthy community based non-profits, are needed in USA and other nations where forestry is important resource for healthier community & econoomic value now and in future. Those nations who do not have a significant forestry industry base, for example, some countries in Northern Europe, they have develoed "niche" secondary manufacturing industry based on important of softwoord and hardwood lumbers from USA and other nations. Strengthening such "value trade" among nations in beneficial to participating trading nations, including USA.

Forest biotechnology is an emerging new industry with substantial potential for those nations who are able and willing to motivate at least some young people to invest in the knowledge of forest life science as available in industry and at some research universities in USA.

Reforestation replace Deforestation for Healthy Community

Add Dance of Prosperity Tomorrow for Doing Good Today !

Here are the key reasons as itemized in the "economic impact" website from the Dept of Forestry of the State of Virginia, I refer below. I will itemize the key reasons.

(01) Forestry is the no. 1 source of manufacturing jobs in Virginia. Such products that are manufactured from forestry resources such as windows, doors, floors & building materials provide jobs, often higher paying because skilled workers are important.

(02) Forestry landowners receive healthy compensation when lumber is prudently cut on their land periodically with a tree growing cycles of 10 years for softwood such as pine trees, to 20 years or more for hardwood such as Chestnut and Birch.

(03) Forests provide recreation for visitors and residents in Virginia, with fishing, hunting, camping, festivals and more. In fact, in the State of Virginia, 2/3 of the people use these facilities on a typical year for leisure activities that are important and beneficial.

(04) Trees help reduce erosion and creeks, rivers and waterways have cleaner water than otherwise. In fact, in many nations in the world today, including parts of USA, deforestation and loss of green cover is a major source of water pollution.

(05) Enter "Reforestation" and tools such as "Tree Plantations" (thorough Timber Investment Managent Organization) in cooperation with appropriate community based non-profits and municipal governets, strengthening forests at the crossroad between providen tool as "TIMO" and newly emerging "forest life sciences" , a quiet revolution is possible in USA, and other friendly nations where forestry is also important.

Demand for forestry products will remain far higher than expanding supply of forestry products possible.

      reforestation will bring back the rainfall. there is drought in some parts of the world because

      the rain bringing trees were being destroyed and not replenished.

      Reforestation connects to everyone , without forests we are all going to have hard time with pollutants and depleting oxygen levels.

      An unbelievable portion of the Earth's biodiversity is situated in tropical areas. The lack of reforestation in tropical climates is putting a larger portion of species at risk of becoming endangered. great topic. nicely done.

      Reforestation is an essential in our world, we don't really have a choice. I grew up in the north woods of Minnesota and have been familiar with reforestation all my life.
