not really.
.
but we can try to make this planet a healthier one by cleaning up our various messes. as in trying to recycle what we can. to conserve our resources as best as we can.
.
and if possible, follow the pattern that many lumber mills tend to follow. if we cut down a living plant. try to plant two more in it's place.
.
that one is also a good business practice. something that the lumber mill up in Carlton county has been doing for decades. no matter what company owns it.

NYC no longer recycles anything because it found there is no payback in terms of reduced energy use of pollution.

As far as planting trees after you cut one down is BS. If a tree is cut down new sprouts grow from the trunk and will grow to 3-4 feet in a year.

Cut them and they automatically regrow with no need for replanting. Unless of course you desire to change the type of tree.

No!

ONLY Mankind can Intervene in Gods Creation!

Only man can make a tree and save Or Mom!

Too many of the "Progressive Scientific Smart Folk" believe that all of the trees that have infested Minnesotastan Prairies are there because Johnny Appleseed planted them....and that without the self important, Nature could not survive the rest of us of the Unenlightened that do not "Care" as much as the "Progressive Scientific Smart Folk".

These people were Educated" in our Government Schools.....and they have a VOTE!

if you had done your research. you would have found out that the only true apple species native to North America here out of the known 2500 species, is the crabapple. and there is four of those endemic to the land here. each to their own area of the continent. though those areas do overlap.
.
Malus coronaria - American crabapple
Malus angustifolia - Southern crabapple
Malus ioensis - Prairie crabapple
Malus fusca - Pacific crabapple
.
many of the other apple species that came here. were done by the farmers that moved here. or they were wild seeded from the ones that came here by someone. in many cases of wild seeding. it was done by birds who first ate the apple and excreted the seed some distance away from where it was first consumed.
.
according to genetics and history. the first apples that are the ancestors of the ones we now eat alot of. came from the lands around Persia.
.
I was surprised to find my favourite crabapple is not one native to America here. but came from Russia. the Dolgo crabapple. the same kind planted around the Crystal Lake cementary. Dolgo means 'long' in Russian in the area they came from.

I wouldn't go that far. We have a knack for messing things up in really big ways. That said, we may be able to have minor affects on the climate, but in the big picture, it doesn't mean very much. Nature has a way of overcoming our stupidity. Radiation from bomb testing dissipates over time. Damage from clear cutting or fires caused by butt-flicking fools grows back, and when cities die, nature takes them back. Our impact is fleeting at best.

that is not true for most trees. very few trees grow from the roots of the tree that was cut down.
.
why do you think that most species of trees tend to reproduce via seeds. like the acorn is the seed of oak trees. apple seeds in apples. nuts like walnuts, pecans, etc.... are the seeds of those trees that they come from.
.
even mangrove trees reproduce thru seeds.
.
what you said about how trees reproducing. is like saying the eggs one buys in stores do not come from chickens. that they come from some egg making factory that somehow can get it into that shell. and that chickens reproduce somehow thru fusion.
.
http://www.ncsu.edu/project/treesofstrength/t... Most trees are grown from seeds -- this leads to variability in the age at which they flower, the amount of flowers produced and the intensity of fall color. Ideally, trees you plant would be grown from seeds collected in a similar climate. Seeds collected in areas with significantly different temperatures will have a different cold and heat tolerance.
.
this company's mill tends to harvest white pine up in the Cloquet area:
http://www.sappi.com/regions/sa/SappiSouthern... The decision to invest in forestry either by planting virgin land or buying an existing tree farm should, like
any investment opportunity, be carefully researched and the risks and returns quantified as best possible.

Let's talk Minnesota.

Maple, Birch, popular trees.

Call the DNR and ask them what happens if those trees are clear cut.

I happen to know because I am having an 80 clear cut and the DNR is saying cut it in the winter and by the next fall there will be 3-4 feet of regrowth. We arn't cutting any coniferous trees.

popular is the only one of the three you mentioned that has root suckers. the other two reproduce via seeds. meaning planting.
.
normally the three feet of growth is the bush growth that occurs when the land is freed from the trees. as well as weeds, and grass.
.
as for knowing about what the paper mills do to make sure there are trees for later harvesting. several members of my husband's family works/ed for them. including his now retired father.
.
this is from the DNR's site: http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/anniver... Natura.l Reproduction
A tree must reach a certain age to produce seed. This age varies
from a very few years, in the case of the Jack Pine, to several
decades for Oak, White Spruce. and other species.
All trees will reproduce themselves by means of seed when conditions are right.
.
by the way, coniferous trees can be found in many areas including Florida, Minnesota, and Alaska. besides over in Europe as well.
.
I have lived in Minnesota my entire life. only tree that I ever saw reproducing via root suckers was the tree that was cut down a decade ago. it was a species of poplar known as White Poplar - Populus alba.

Ask the DNR which trees grow from cut stumps.

Report back.

I know for fact birch and popular do, I cut a birch a year ago and sprouts came up from the stump right a way.

There are enough maple saplings growing from seed to grow back without planting seeds.

I love it when tree huggers are clueless.

The ignorant bytch claimed no trees grew from stumps.

The DNR recommended clear cut with no need for planting and we'd have 3-4 saplings in the fall.
