Thinning is a crucial operation performed to maintain forest health. Whether on monoculture tree farms or native wildlands, small trees are periodically removed to leave more nutrients, water, and light for more dominant trees. These small diameter trees have little use except for building pole structures (fences mostly, and of course furniture) and are otherwise left as slash, to decay naturally or to be burned.
By creating a viable market for these small trees, we encourage forest
thinning, create jobs, and reduce the need to burn slash, all of which are good for the economic health of our region and the planet.
