Very good thought but unfortunately the state government here is hacking down trees and burning forests in the name of development, a lepord gets into a populated area people kill it in fear.

In the name of development many bad things have been done . Many other countries have done the the same . In our major cities our air is from bad to worse due to it . Trees and plants is cleaning the air . More should be planting trees . I personally just prefer fruit trees , they give something to eat as well .

If one is cut down, two should be planted in it's place. That does happen but not enough.

It also takes many tress a long time to grow.

Speaking in the USA, wood is not used as often as it once was. It is still used a lot and
lumber is very expensive. However, other materials are often used instead such as
plastics, formica's, ceramics, pressed wood/chipboard, metals, etc.

When it comes to building houses, lumber is still very much in demand.

There has got to be a lot said for Neanderthals. They lived in caves, stayed warm in the
winter and cool in the summer without heat/air conditioning.

Villages here are still better than cities and more people are migrating to villages these days in search of freshness

Most of the homes in this country use wood....framing flooring, etc...

Yes, there is a trend to steel and re-cycled materials...

The timber industry in the south-east depends on a reliable and
replenishable resource, timber (wood). Huge forests are
selectively harvested in checkerboard fashion...yes clear cuts....that are
immediately re-sown for another harvest.

And this marvelous resource is usually pine. Grows quickly. Has a
cured strength comparable to oak.

What's not to love. No guilt here.

Here in Sweden we have twice as much forest as we did 100 years ago.

This is because we are constantly re-planted forest , we take care of the forest all the time in the right way , so we have no problem with it.

As I sit here looking out my window, I can see the largest tree on my property.
It's a large oak tree. Nothing attractive about it. The squirrels seem to really
like it and there is some large openings in it further up the tree.

Some times when at my desk, as I am now, I am almost entranced when I
look out the window at the old oak tree. I guess the word 'wonder' would be
more appropriate. How long has that tree been there? How long did it take
to grow? Did someone plant it?

When I look at that tree, I know it is hundreds of years old. Maybe over a
thousand years old.

IF that tree was to fall, was to be destroyed, could another tree really take
it's place? NO, it never could. You could plant a fast growing pine but it
would not be an oak tree. If you plant another oak tree like it, another
hundreds if not thousands of years before it grew up big and strong like it's
predecessor.

Where I sit was once a tree. Now it is a house.

No matter what anyone says, our forestry is and has been depleting and has
been for many years.

I should say in this context, that every effort should be made to save trees directly or indirectly. For this we can switch to first of all ,E-paper rather than conventional paper, thereby saving a lot a trees. for those who cannot access net or are not tech savvy we can educate at least 1 people (sounds philosophical but possible) to use net. Secondly we can switch to jute bags so that many articles can come at the same time (again for many a queer thing) instead of carrying everything on paper bags. Encouraging afforestation is always the first preference but alternative methods can be tried too.

Stores in the USA do not use paper bags any more. It's plastic.

Plastic Plastic Plastic and more Plastic.

Just use your backpack as i do :thumbup:

Nearly 100% paper free myself

Do you Americans use no thanks stickers on your mail-box?, Here in Denmark you need to change your sticker every year (Stupid), And even then you are forced to receive a bit of recommended paper commercials now and then (Can only be used as an substitute for toilet paper :mrgreen: )

And don't ever forget to change that sticker :mrgreen:

Saving and planting trees is important as is protecting the environment in general. However, the rate of human growth is unsustainable on this small planet. Reducing the population by encouraging family planning and making birth control readily available must accompany environmental efforts.
