Michigan Pine Trees Dying

When you think about Michigan pine trees what do you see? You probably see trees that are already dead or dying. Do you think that this is just nature taking its course and nothing can be done to prevent it? This could not be further from the truth.

Over the past 40 years or so there has been a severe change in the way that pine trees are grown and harvested. The old method of planting pine trees was quite an honor until all of those trees were lost in a mass fire a few decades back. How did this happen? Well, during the height of the pulp boom many tree cutters and growers went out and bought new machines and started to mechanically prune trees. But, without enough care these trees would soon die.

The trees that were being pruned became weak and died off rapidly, some even fell to the ground. Some trees were left on the market dying from the inside out. And while everyone was happy because they were getting rid of the trees that were no longer useful, they were in fact causing the future deaths of countless more Michigan pine trees. While the government and the industry tried for several years to come up with a better method of tree removal and prevention, no improvements were made. As a result, today we have a very high risk of dying or hurting our trees from the improper cutting techniques that are still in place to this day.

The thinning and dying of Michigan pine trees is due to this thinning and dying due to the fact that trees are not being cared for as they should be. Trees need to be cared for and protected from harvesting. A lot of money is spent each year on the harvesting of trees and yet the majority of that money never gets back into the tree industry. What happens is that trees are harvested too fast and at the wrong times when they are at their weakest. Many tree growers of lumber realize this and they don't care for the trees that they're cutting down.

It may seem like an impossible task to prevent trees dying from the elements or a tree dying in your yard, but it can be done. In order to save as many Michigan pine trees as possible, we need to pay attention to how trees are being cut down and harvested. If people will just listen to what we're saying, then we could have a significant amount of trees growing on our land by next year. And who knows, maybe after a few more years, we'll have enough trees to make this world green again and not have to worry about trees dying or losing their needles.

If you want to get involved in helping to conserve our precious trees, then get involved with growing trees and tree products. There are many great organizations out there that will help you with what you need. You can even start your own tree business by creating your own product line and selling it locally as well as online. By getting involved in the tree industry today, you can be a part of helping to save our trees and the future of our world. Don't let another day go by when another Michigan pine tree dies or when another tree in the surrounding area is removed.
