talking about them taking their huge equipment into old growth forests and
selectively cutting trees. they leave the debris behind, which doesnt actually
with fire problems at all. anyone walked in climax forest finds the forest
very damn little debris or brush at all, can walk between the trees easily. any
in climax forests has very little fuel and certainly not enough to light up the
of the trees. fire actually is required for germination of some tree seeds and
sweep thru old forests without lighting up the big trees.
now cut out here and there, open lots of holes of sunlight into the old forest
all kinds of brush gets growing which is excellent fuel to get a blaze going hot
enough to jump to the top.
crop trees.... dont clean much of anything out, they mulch it right back in for
nutrients until the trees are cut and sold. I got no problem with tree
altho when the "wood" leaves there goes the nutrients. in the temperate areas
isnt as much of a problem tho. Ingrid

Not necessarily - I run my Xmas trees through a chipper-shredder and turn it
into compost. There are also many areas in which there is a regional
collection site where the same thing is done on a commercial basis. Another
legitimate use in our area (IMHO) is to collect and sink discarded trees
into area lakes, where they become nurseries for spawning fish and a hiding
place for fingerlings. Our area is strongly encouraged to bring all its
discarded trees to a collecting point for this purpose.
I did a powerpoint presentation on recycling Christmans trees and it
covers the fish reefs as well as other applications. There were some
cool pix of Huey helicopters airlifting trees into wooden bins off the
Louisiana coast designed as barriers to reclaim coastline and then were
