What benefits would Old growth trees provide for the logging industry?

Paper is the only advantage I can think of.

  • Natural Regions - ,

    Most of the old-growth forests that are logged are used for lumber.

  • Natural Regions - ,

    Are they also used for housing?

  • Natural Regions - ,

    Yes. Lumber is used in housing. Most houses are framed by 2" by 4" by long pieces of lumber.

  • Natural Regions - ,

    So they only have two advantages. Paper and lumber/housing. They can create resources for human use.

  • Natural Regions - ,

    Right.

    I think the question is whether the logging industry can find new growth forests that will produce the same products -- but at slightly higher costs. My answer is yes.

  • Natural Regions - ,

    Alright. Thank you.

  • Natural Regions - ,

    You're welcome.
