Reforestation

Reforestation

 

is the natural or intentional restocking of existing forests and woodlands that have been depleted, usually through deforestation. Reforestation can be used to improve the quality of human life by soaking up pollution and dust from the air, rebuild natural habitats and ecosystems, mitigate global warming since forests facilitate biosequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide, and harvest for resources, particularly timber.

The term reforestation is similar to afforestation, the process of restoring and recreating areas of woodlands or forests that may have existed long ago but were deforested or otherwise removed at some point in the past. Sometimes the term re-afforestation is used to distinguish between the original forest cover and the later re-growth of forest to an area. Special tools, e.g. tree planting bar, are used to make planting of trees easier and faster.

THE TECHNIQUES OF CLONING and SPREADING SEEDS

 Try to use native plants to the area so excess water does not need to be wasted to maintain growth. Of course all new plants need watering and care to establish. Always consider Moon Cycles for Maximum success of the plant.

Medium sized areas can be populated with tube size plants from the nursery, these are cheap & you can afford to over plant. It is worth knowing that a tube size plant will be bigger than a large expensive nursery plant in 3 years because tube plants have a small root area which settles into the soil quicker.

 

Reafforestation occurs naturally when the seeds from the native trees to the area are spread by the wind. But if there are no trees there is no seeds hence wind and water erosion begins. THe result devastation and no carbon fixation - increase pollution.
