Well there you go. If a thread is started about moralizing over man's relationship to nature then it works at either a corporate or personal level. Your post directed at Revi started dragging the thread down into Spanish Inquisition territory so you're really no better than Adam when it comes to that sort of thing. Always quick to judge and not keen to take your own medicine.

Idiot. I was commenting on Revi's description of those small trees as a "wood lot". He corrected me. The big trees are in the back.

Revi is one of the few non-idiots here. He is living a good life, closer to the earth and Gaia. That is why he is so kind to losers like yourself. I am not as close to Gaia. She is making me impatient and I get angry.

"Something to think about:

The Earth is 4.6 billion years old.

Let's scale that to 46 years.

We have been here for 4 hours.

Our industrial revolution began 1 minute ago.

In that time, we have destroyed 50% of the world's forests.

This isn't sustainable."

The trees I see are no more than 6 inches in diameter. That is hardly a forest. Here in the Humboldt, the typical timber harvest rotation on any given plot of land is 40 years and the average cut tree size is probably 20 inches . . . still tragically small :cry:


We have about 500 tappable maples, and all sorts of other species on that lot. I agree that the trees aren't the size of the ones in Humbolt County, since they are some of the largest trees in the world. We do have three or 4 maples that are way bigger than a 24 inch diameter, and we put three taps in them. We use the smaller "ecolo taps" and don't use vacuum, so we just take what the trees give.

Are small trees somehow inferior to large trees?

You can't tap a maple until it's got a 10 inch diameter, so I guess they are just the future forest. They are growing in. I like the maples we have because they are growing vigorously and are making more sap each year.

Ancient Baobab trees dying off in Africa---Climate change is blamed

die-off-africa-oldest-baobabs

Darn....the Baobabs can't be dying off already. I haven't gotten to Madagascar to see them yet. I'm going to have to speed up my end-of-the-world tour to see all the things that are going to disappear due to climate change. I never dreamed the Baobab trees would start dying off before I even get there. I'm heading down there next summer (2019) and should be able to see them before they get totally wiped out.

If you want to see the ancient Baobab trees before they disappear you've got to go now...the die off has begun.
