Transcript of Trees and the Vermont Economy

Trees and the Vermont Economy
Products In VT That Come From Trees
Other Parts of the Economy
If We Didn't Have a Lot of Trees In Vermont...
Maple Syrup
Other than just tasting better, maple syrup is better for you that pancake syrup(or faple syrup, as I like to call it). Faple syrup is corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, sweeteners, and caramel coloring(which does not come from caramel, sadly).
Lumber
Lumber is wood for building. You cut down a tree, remove the bark, and then cut it into the right-sized pieces to make it. Without lumber, you might not have a house, and would have to sleep outside.
Firewood
Although firewood isn't used as much as much as it used to, it is an efficient, fairly clean-burning heating source. It is cheaper that oil or gas and better for the environment than either. It aids the Vermont economy by providing fuel and a heating souce.
Livestock and Poultry
Livestock and poultry are another large part of our economy. Burgers, steak, bacon, pork chops, chicken nuggets, and roast chicken all come from livestock and poultry. Dairy and eggs also come from livestock and poultry, and are very nutritious.
Trees vs. Animals
Tree and animal products are both large parts of our economy, and equally important. Lumber, paper, maple syrup, and apples all come from trees and are important products in the tree part of our economy. Everybody needs paper in school, and everybody(except for me) loves apples!
Other Agricultural Parts of the Vermont Economy
Not all of the agriculture in in Vermont is trees. $3.9 billion total were made through meat and dairy, creating 21,380 jobs. However trees are still a large part of the Vermont economy. Without wood, those workers might not have a place to live!
The agricultural part of Vermont's economy(which includes farming, forestry, fishing, and hunting) is very important to the well-being of vermonters. Lots of people have farms in this state. My grandparents were farmers! Trees provided $1 billion to the VT economy. Also, forested land is about 4,000,000 acres, more than pastureland and cropland combined!
The Effect On The Economy
If trees were fewer in Vermont, it would be a lot poorer. We would lose a lot of revenue through the lack of trees. We would produce less or no maple syrup or "liquid gold", as some people call it. Basicaly Vermont would be a lot poorer.
Air Quality
The air quality in Vermont would not be as good if we had fewer trees. Trees filter out carbon dioxide, which is bad for humans to inhale too much. If there is not enough oxygen in the air, humans can't function at full mental capacity, which isn't good.
Thank You!
In Vermont there are many products that come from trees. Lumber, maple syrup, firewood, and paper, just to name few. They are very important to Vermont's economy.
