In an effort to defray the present rate of damage happening in rain forests in the world, there is a greater need for planting tropical trees. Tropical trees are being harvested at a rapid pace, and replacing these trees is a vital practice. More than 50 million acres of tropical trees are being harvested annually, and the number of trees is diminishing quickly. This results, not only in higher priced woods, but in a higher demand for rarer trees, and a vicious cycle develops where more trees must be harvested, endangered, and then sold. Without replacing these trees one day the world will be without them; this will harm the environment, will cause rapid soil erosion, and can diminish the world's air quality as well.
The trees most commonly harvested in the rain forests include the Wild Tambran, Roble, Primavera, Madero negro, Cocobolo, Mahogany, Brazilian cherry, Nargusta, Bocote, Purpleheart, Teak, Trebol, Santa Maria, and others. These woods are used for making woods for tree spacing calculator hardwood floors, wood trim, woodworking, veneers, cabinets, and other wood furnishings. The rain forest trees offer up woods that are coveted because they are strong, rot-resistant, lovely, and ultra-stable. The pace of deforestation today will cause what is left of the remaining rainforest to disappear within the next three decades.
The rainforests need to be protected; when trees are harvested from the area they need to be replaced. Of course, there is even a better solution; people can create tree plantations where they can grow trees specifically for harvesting while leaving the rainforests alone completely. A tree plantation can be established where trees are planted, harvested, and replanted, and such trees can be used for making a substantial profit. This would help to protect the environment, the existing forests, and the animals that live in the rainforest too. What's more, if trees are cultivated in tree plantations, the costs of the woods harvested would not be driven up by the increasing rarity of the woods. It is a win/win situation for all involved.
