We know what trees need to grow and thrive in the Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR areas. Allowing us to help you choose and plant the type of trees for your property that meet your needs and your visual expectations will help to reduce future problems associated with planting the wrong tree in the wrong location.
Problems that could crop up without proper foresight may include limited growing space, soil management, and tree insects & diseases.
If you can picture a forest as being a really, really big garden with rolling hills and massive landscape you will be able to understand the concept behind reforestation. Reforestation is the practice of planting tree seedlings for harvest once they reach a certain age, height or other requirement.
The garden comparison comes from the fact that tree seedlings are planted at time intervals that rotate with harvests allowing for the same land to keep producing crops, like a garden.
The Beauty Of Reforestation
Tree planting as part of a reforestation program comes into play for more than just land that has been harvested or removed for wood. Tree seedlings are also planted in areas where forests have been damaged by wildfire or had to be logged in response to a severe pest attack.
The whole idea behind reforestation is to bring back to life land that once held trees, resulting in a new crop of timber for various commercial and residential uses.
The foundation behind tree planting is built upon forest science, and when it is properly executed it can result in a newly developed forest in a location that may not have been used for this purpose for years.
One of the many reasons why reforestation is a useful tool is through the stabilization of ground and soil that may otherwise be washed away by erosion. Tree roots work to prevent this from happening, and at AK Timber Services we can provide you with a free estimate for our tree planting service just by calling us at (360) 635-1076 or e-mailing us today.
