Future Forests

Description

Most people in B.C. know that trees are replanted after they are logged, but few know the extent to which both industry and the provincial government go to insure that the newly-planted forests will thrive. The trees which will sustain our environment, our economy, and our quality of life in future generations are being planted and tended now. This program will show the whole gamut of activities that must occur after logging, including ground preparation, planting, micrositing, brushing, etc, until the trees are big enough to grow on their own. When it comes to sustaining things such as schools, highways, health care, and other necessary services in BC, raising trees to the point at which they are classed as "free to grow" is vital.
