Sustainable Forestry and Reforestation

Sustainable development requires wood, but at the same time we love trees, so finding a plan to sustainably plant and harvest trees is essential for an eco-village that’s attempting to be as self-sufficient as possible. There are several issues to consider: Forestry Using Native Species It’s very popular to plant Teak and Melina trees in […]
