Seeing the Forest Community Through the Trees



Restoration forester Matthew Hall has a vision for the Aprovecho woods: a managed ancient forest. Weaker trees are made into products while the larger trees stay in the forest forever. He retains nature’s changes (like storm-dropped trees). He recruits snags. Tops snapped off of larger trees stay on the forest floor “to create a bank account of large woody debris.” He’s managing not just for the trees, but for the other communities who live here — soil, bugs, birds, and humans. Episode 243. [aprovecho.net].
