British Columbia Trees

Ways or responsibilities that industries, people and governments did to boost the sustainability of trees in British Columbia and tell the renewability and non renewability of trees?

Over 90% of Canada’s forests are publicly owned. The provinces and territories make a way enforce the legislation and policies connected to sustainable forest management. They approve forest management plans and they monitor and enforce forest operations so they can certify that the harvesting is done sustainably and that that all trees don’t get cut down at once and the area is harvested again for the renewability of the trees. Only 35 in 180 tree species are harvested for commercial purposes. The reason Canada only has 35 tree species available for commercial use is because that there are a lot of these species and broadly distributed in Canada.

Countries Canada is trading trees with and the trends of exports of trees and how the availabeness and space of trees in Canada are connected to the physical geography of the country and explain the importance of their availablity and giving out nationally and globally and also how much money Canada is making with exports.

Canada has 318 billion trees (8953 trees per person). British Columbia is the world's largest softwood lumber. The soil is really good and there are a lot of trees in BC and because of that most of the trees come from there. British Columbia's forestry sector has been well established connections with major markets with countries such as United states, Japan, China, South Korea and Europe. The chart below shows how much money has been made by exporting trees and the countries that are trending for exports of trees.

In a geographic way, problems connecting to making, removing and management of trees found in Canada.

There has been only 0.2% deforestation in Canada and the only reason of Canada losing this much forestry is because of logging for wood. In 1990 63,100 hectors were lost due to deforestation and in 2014 the number of hectors dropped to 34,200 hectares.

How people cut trees and bring them back to their industries in Canada.

The most common method to cut trees down in Canada is the Clear-Cutting method. Clear-cutting is when every single marketable tree is cut down from a selected area. Forest cutting companies use this method because its cheap and most efficient for cutting down trees. They use log grapplers so they can pick up the cut trees that have the diameter of 80cm and they put the logs in log trucks and to deliver them to the place where they need to.
