The Green Cutters
Transcript of The Green Cutters
1. Low Impact logging
The industry of forestry is a very valuable resource economically to the world and Canada especially. This natural resource can be very helpful to rural cites.
Canada owns 10% of the world's forests and is a major part to Canada's economy. In 2010, forestry products contributed $16.6 billion to the economy.
3. Selective Cutting
We use an effective method called "selective cutting" this method consists of only harvesting mature trees of the desired type, size, or quality.
This method is less disruptive to the forest environment. And by choosing the desired type of trees they are making it less costly.
The goal of selective cutting is to ensure continued development of trees in each age class and the continued availability.
2. We use efficient and safe tools to log.
Forestry is a main part of the world's trade and can be made into many important products. Such as paper, or wood which can be made into furniture. As Canada is the biggest forestry producer, we provide wood and/or dry lumber to needing countries. Not only does it benefit them, but also benefits Canada by giving profit to us.

Cutter's Sustainable ways to
use tools such as mini skidders which are much more safer for the surrounding trees
don't want to crash into the trees while logging
The large skidder is 9 feet wide
takes up more space than the small skidder and its easier for them to crash into trees
the large skidder need more space in order for it work work efficiently
will have more trees by using the small skidder

Although forestry is a vital resource that we need, there are many issues facing this natural resource, for example:
1. Using forestry
Some people and tertiary industries waste and use trees non-efficiently. They may cut more than they need making the natural resource quantity go down. Many methods of logging such as clear cutting, lowers the quantity of the timber leading to scarcity in the future.
Many diseases or pests can be harmful to Canada's forests. The Long Horned Beetle is one of many invasive species that can cause serious damage to trees, enough for the trees to be cut, and burned. As diseases get more and more common among the forests, more and more trees will die affecting the natural resource of forestry.
This method of logging includes different ways to make logging sustainable.
Before cultivating the trees from the ground, Green cutters plans out first where each harvest is going to happen. To cut, we make sure we cut the stumps low to the ground and use the unhealthiest trees first to give the healthy trees more space to grow and live.
Low impact logging has very small impact to the soil, which doesn't damage the roots of the surrounding trees and causes less disturbance. LIF includes using the cut to length system which uses smaller logging machines, that create lighter "footprints" on the ground.
This method of sustainable logging continually helps the growth in stock by letting good and healthy trees that were left after the harvest to keep growing and ensures the future viability of the natural resource.
Due to government rebates in the U.S to local forestry industries, the canadian forestry industry is finding it hard to compete.
Canada is trying to find other world markets to export lumber, so that they are not too dependent on the U.S because they are one of Canada's biggest trading partners
