TREES AS CROPS

For a "tree farmer",
crops are trees
for long-term cultivation.

Rows and rows of maple, oak, birch, 
pine, locust, spruce and walnut.

Harvested from 2 to 10 years old
for landscaping, city planning,
parks, highways, and forestry conservation.

Trees are important for watershed, 
wildlife habitat, temperature moderation,
CO2 absorption, timber, pulp, shade,
oxygen, but most of all . . . beauty!

  1. Hi Rick,
    Do I agree with your comment!
    Trees are essential to the good health of our planet, it is so terrible we don't have much of the primary forests left on the planet...A great job to work with trees, that is what we do on our property!
    Enjoy your weekend!
