The dwindling natural forest cover all across the globe would make it best that a means of providing for wood for use is arrived at that does not rely on virgin forests to be supplied of the necessary wood. This is where sustainable forestry comes into play, in providing a sustaining activity that seeks to refresh the forest or green cover while at the same time getting to meet the needs and requirements of a growing human population.
Use of wood for human activity
Increasingly people have taken to going back to nature that more products are being preferred done in wood than say materials like petroleum by-products. There has been a environmental awakening so to speak that would rather than use destructive materials that could have a negative impact on the environment works to be more eco friendly so to speak.
Since it is possible to grow back trees, the wood is seen as being a renewable source of building material. This is a view that is increasingly being taken by the more advanced of nations across the globe to introduce in many instances newer uses of wood than considered possible earlier.
The peculiar nature of trees and their growth
It must be stressed that trees are rather slow in growing to the desired height and it really does not make sense to cut down tender wood as it would not work out to be cost effective. It is also a fact that the harder wearing of wood takes a lot more time to mature than the softer variety. The very practical aspect to this fact is that the wood produced naturally would work out to be rather expensive in most instances.
The use of fast growing trees are particularly useful in producing wood that gets to mature faster than the typical natural tree with a hardness of material produced that is very much comparable to the actual need. It must be pointed out that not all wood grow at a fast rate and the correct selection of the right variety of wood would give a set of results that are not reproducible with any other variety of wood.
The cost factor to growing wood
When, it would be possible to grow as many trees per unit area of land, then it would be possible to get the maximum return for the cost of land involved. It must be said of the Paulowina Elongata that the very nature of the foliage makes it best suited to be planted in a small space of land. Thus taken for the money deployed in purchasing or leasing land, the Paulowina gives the most wood as compared to any other variety of trees.
Any sort of investment is best done to produce the most return for the capital deployed. Thus it is possible to have the most return when the Paulowina is used as it is rather a fast growing variety as well. There really isn’t much by way of tending to the crop of trees during the period that it takes to grow from seedlings to full grown status.
