Forlorn hope

 Logged-off emptiness, and four seed trees.

Standing tall.

This method of harvesting a forest supposedly jump-starts the reforestation of the area. I don't know how effective it is.

The seed tree reforestation method leaves healthy, mature trees with a good cone crop (usually 6 to 15 per acre) in the existing stand to provide seed for regenerating a new stand of trees.  ... It is not unusual for a forest manager to leave the seed trees for wildlife or aesthetics objectives. (Thoughtco)
However, with so much of Vancouver Island logged off, and with climate change upon us, I'm wondering how long it will be before the forests re-establish themselves.


Un terreno denudado de su bosque, con cuatro árboles dejado en pie para proveer semillas para la reforestación.

Se dice que este método de cosecha de nuestros bosques ayuda a la repoblación forestal. No sé si funciona.

El método de reforestación por medio de árboles semilleros deja árboles maduros y sanos con una producción óptima de piñas (normalmente de 6 a 15 por acre (0,4 hectárea) en pie para proveer semillas para regenerar un nuevo bosque. ... No es raro que un silvicultor deje los árboles para la fauna silvestre y consideraciones de estética. (Thoughtco)

Sin embargo, con tanto de la isla Vancouver ya desnudado, con el cambio de clima que ahora se presenta, me pregunto cuánto tiempo tomará para que se reestablecen nuestros bosques.

I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
