You can’t keep forests unless you cut down trees. It sounds like a contradiction, but it is true. “Wood thinning” is for keeping distance among trees and provide trees enough light evenly. ”Regeneration cutting” is for cutting down trees. Grow trees, cut down the trees, and plant new trees. Young trees can absorb a lot of CO2 by doing that repeatedly, which leads to prevent from Global warming.
However, aging of forests is getting a serious problem due to the lack of necessary care by low demand of domestic timbers. The passion about trees and desire of protecting woods and promoting the use of domestic timbers produced “NICHIHA Offset Siding” by utilizing wood chips.
