Salvage logging confirmed unsustainable and may have unintended ecological consequences

An article centered on salvage logging and its impact on forests was reviewed and the most astonishing finding was that private logging companies are subsidized for salvage logging activities. Why? Because salvage logging isn’t profitable. If this study is broken down correctly, collected taxes are paying companies to take logs out of forests that are deemed forever wild.

The Data Doesn’t Lie

The writer of the article developed and analyzed 23 case studies to see if salvage logging was a normal practice in all parts of the world. Of those 23 cases, 21 had evidence of salvage logging. Even more mind-blowing is that 13 out of the 19 forests that were logged in Europe and Asia were protected forests. These areas throughout Europe were intended to be left to the mercy of nature.

A Quiet Movement

The bigger problem is that we, as humans, are completely incapable of leaving things alone. Why can’t these unprofitable forests be left as is? The survival of many species has the potential to be devastated by seemingly harmless human activity. Removal of those logs is disrupting animal shelters, food, and soil stabilizations… the list is endless.

In recent years society has seen its back-walking on advancement and technology. Making tasks easier is one thing, fully automating everything is another. When we are in control of our basic survival needs, we decrease the chance of becoming sick from exposure to modified foods and harmful chemicals. Our ancestors lived the homesteading life before it was considered an alternate lifestyle. They were on to something! More and more people are retreating to the outskirts of suburbs for many reasons and that move is beneficial to the health of our environment.

The Solution is Organic

A study conducted between 2017 and 2018 in the Adirondack State Park has put the homesteading movement into tangible data. This data will be used to determine investment opportunities in small economies and natural resource conservation. Being stewards of our environment while obtaining financial stability could be the solution to ending unstainable practices such as salvage logging.

The solution to ending unsustainable logging practices may already be part of the homesteading movement. #PrimroseCreations #LoveTheLifeYouLive #Science #Ecology #Homestead #Homesteading #Conservation #Wildlife #WorthMoreAlive #Adirondacks #Adk #Pharaoh Mountain
