Safe Tree Removal Tips
In the United States, as of 2015, it is believed that around 15 billion trees are cut down each year. Because of their many uses, there are countless reasons why trees are cut down. Tree removal is at an all-time high and according to research, the world consumption of paper has grown 400 percent in the last 40 years. Now nearly 4 billion trees (35 percent) of all trees cut around the world are used in paper industries on every continent. But paper is a broad category that includes printing paper, newspapers, toilet paper, etc.
During processing most of the individual tree is used and not wasted: the wood used to make paper is mostly sawdust and wood chips from lumber mills, not just entire trees that were cut down – most companies try to recycle and reuse where they can. If one company cannot use a certain part of the tree, another will take it for their own use.
Lumber companies are obviously another leading industry that needs trees for lumber. From the 2×4 boards used to build a house, to the wood in a guitar, and on a kitchen table, trees are an extremely important part of our world – dead or alive. Trees are also downed to make room for new buildings and developments. This wood is rarely ever wasted and will be used to make furniture, paper, boards, and at the very least, firewood. Wood is still used in many rural parts for firewood to heat buildings and homes, although, many companies now make wood pellets or bricks to burn in woodstoves instead of the traditional logs.
Just like anything else, when treated in a factory, wood produces byproducts that are used for other non-related things. For example, when wood for paper is heated and turned to pulp, the thick gummy substance is known as cellulose cannot be dissolved. It is then separated from the paper pulp and used in asphalt, paint, chewing gum, detergents, turpentine, deodorants, floor tiles, rayon clothing, sandwich bags, toothpaste, etc. It’s also recycled as food additives. Wood alcohols are used in colognes and solvents.
In fact, latex gloves are a byproduct of trees, coming from Hevea brasiliensis, also known as the rubber tree that is been tapped for its rubbery sap. Many household sponges are also made from cellulose wood fibers. Wine corks come from a tree called the cork oak. The original chewing gum was derived from the sap of the sapodilla tree. Car wax is made from a certain type of palm tree native to Brazil. Hair dye and henna tattoos are from the powder of the henna tree. And of course, chocolate also comes from a tree. Garden mulch or tanbark is recycled wood – when pallets get old, they are ground up and dyed to make mulch.
Tree removal in the U.S.
Often, local tree companies will collaborate with landowners who have sizable forests on their property. With their permission the company will log out of the woods, taking trees of a pre-negotiated size, and will leave the rest of them on the acreage to grow even bigger. The company will pay the landowners for their trees, according to the size of the harvests. This is a very beneficial and economical way of foresting trees here in the U.S.
While clear-cutting woodland rocks the ecosystem, only cutting a select size of tree leaves the remaining trees to grow and mature. This is actually healthier for the woods because it stimulates and enables new growth to take place. The younger trees are then allowed more sunlight, water, and nutrients from the soil since the mature trees are gone.
