This document compares and contrasts three future views on timber supply in the southern region of the US as projected by three third-party forecasting service providers – Forest Economic Advisors (FEA), Resource Information Systems Inc. (RISI), and Forisk. All three forecasts lean heavily on data from the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) National Program and Resource Planning Assessments (RPAs) in their projections. In addition, Forisk explicitly breaks down softwood growing stock inventory into pulp, CNS, and sawtimber inventories whereas FEA and RISI are explicit only about sawtimeber and overall softwood growing stock inventories. This further complicates the comparison among the three providers but allows us to gain some insights on the relative shares of the three above components of timber inventory in the South as projected by Forisk.
Clear cutting forests can be proven to be an unstable way of practising forestry as its long term affects to an environment target the climate, soil conservation, biodiversity and hydrological regimes. Depleting forest resources will be given strict and serious punishment as it affects society as a whole and not
Finally Since the 1990s Minnesota has witnessed an astonishing turnaround in the economic impact of its forests through a second forest revolution. Today, the
John (44) and Mary (43) Winchester were high school sweethearts and have been married for 18 years. They have two teenage boys; Dean (17) and Sam (15). The Winchester family has come to therapy seeing assistance for various issues. Since his return, John has been distant and with drawn. He has is verbally abusive toward Mary and the boys and has developed a drinking problem. His behavior has started to have a serious impact on his relationship with Dean, Sam, and Mary. They have expressed a fear for their safety as well as John’s.
Water is one of the crucial element our planet provides, however, the supply of freshwater will wane if the consumption of water remains unchecked. The steadily growing need to conserve water usage within the United States has sparked people to change their usage of water to aid their communities during desperate times. Recently California experienced a severe drought which called on a restriction on water usage to a bare minimum. During this drought, rising temperature and lack of rain on cities who rely on rain water to recharge the many water sources pushed California governor to act encouraging people to assist with implement the restrictions. The water restriction allowed people to still go about their daily lives while maintaining a
In order to be a key member in the timber industry, every agency must comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The NEPA necessitates that federal agencies to incorporate ecological ethics into assessment of change, bearing in mind the environmental consequences of their requests, this also requires realistic counter-actions to the impacts that may be created. In order to meet the requirements of the federal government a form is provided to from different government
As the Premier of Ontario, I have finally made the decision about the forests of Temagami. By going through everybody’s needs and wants, I have decided that not the old growth pine forests but instead, the regular forest trees are the ones that are going to be cut down for Temagami’s economy. Since cutting down no trees is not an option, the best choice left is to let our old growth trees live. Old growth forests are home to more than half of the world’s red and white pine trees. Only a tiny fraction of these forests is left and if we keep on cutting them down, we are going to lose them all. Those trees are already suffering because of the wild weather conditions in that region. Also, this way, we can leave the regular forests for the loggers
Context: Following a 5-year consultation period that Innergex participated in, the BC government passed the Water Sustainability Act in 2014. The Act provides a comprehensive framework for water use and modernizes water laws by:
Logging has always been a vital part of Maine’s society for financial use and income and export. From the early days of logging, to more modern day large-scale timber harvesting, these valuable logs that were sent to the paper mills and saw mills, where thousands of people have been employed over the past several decades, has been a primary source of income for families for generations and the tax that has helped the state’s funding greatly.
For this assignment, I chose my home in Coastal Georgia. This area includes Brunswick (city and rural areas), St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island and Sea Island. I have had the privilege of contacting our County Commissioner, Dale Provenzano, formally a board member for the Joint Water and Sewer Commission, to enlighten me in the areas of water sourcing, demand, challenges, and solution recommendations.
Water pollution has been an issue for decades here on Earth. Wildlife that lives in or near the ocean are being harmed because of all the trash and waste in the water. For Example: 70% of industrial waste are being dumped into water. Because of all this industrial water, 64% of lakes are not clean because of water pollution, 44% of streams are not clean because of pollution, and 30% of bays are not clean because of water pollution. In 1978, the Amoco Cadiz oil platform spilled over 220,000 tons of oil off the coast of France. This resulted in the death of many species of wildlife around the world. When humans make big mistakes causing natural disasters, the wildlife are the ones that usually pay the price. The people of the United States can reduce water pollution by picking up other people’s trash that is left on the ground, stopping people from draining oil from their vehicles into sources of water, and getting rid of the use of pesticides and other fertilizers.
At first there was concern only among foresters about deforestation but now the public has created organizations such as Green Peace to facilitate increased awareness and reduce deforestation. The Food and Agriculture Organization (F.A.O.) has worked mainly within the forestry community to find new and better ways to manage the forests. In 1985 there was the introduction of the Tropical Forestry Action Plan or T.F.A.P. This plan involved the F.A.O, United Nations, World Bank, other developmental agencies, and several other multi-national government organizations; together they developed a new strategy. More than sixty countries have decided to prepare national forestry action plans to manage their forests (Gallant, 381).
To begin, forest based industrialization is based on forest resources that are used to stimulate economic growth and development. One of the products that have been most important to human economies has always been wood. Wood is durable, light weight, easily worked, waterproof, and a good fiber source. Wood is used in almost every aspect of our lives, for building materials, living, and just surviving. We need wood to build our homes to live in and buildings in which we work and spend the other resource that comes from trees “money”. Studies show that 70% of the products that we use a day are made of some kind of wood. If we were to look around our homes and count all the items that are made of wood we would probably find that 60 percent are made of wood. Without wood humans and other species would never be able to survive.
