Forest Thinning- Mimicking natural fire cycles.

 

Currently, most of the forest land in  BC is over crowded and in various stages of stunted growth.  In some cases it is even dying out, creating stagnant areas for tree growth and excessive fuel loading. 

Using highly specialized small scale equipment, a first pass thinning harvest can create natural breaks in the canopy, contribute to forest diversity and species preservation.  The added effects are reduced fuel loading, concentration of water and nutrients on remaining trees and multi-layer forest rejuvenation.  Our forests and landscape can benefit in tremendous ways if we observe and replicate natures way.
