Looking at the Future of the Forest

On April 10, 1872, the seeds of Arbor Day were sown in Nebraska, a state more commonly associated with prairies than forests, when J. Sterling Morton proposed the idea of a day dedicated to planting trees. A million trees were planted in that state on the first Arbor Day, and the success of the event led to the celebration of Arbor Day in all 50 states. However, when the topic of planting trees is discussed at Alliance Tire, our thoughts drift to the role delicate woodland soils and our tires play in the growth of trees.

As the summer progresses and the dry season comes upon us, the likelihood of forest fires significantly increases. While wildfires have always been an issue during the dry season, the combination of climate change, drought, and insects has not only increased the occurrence of forest fires and extended their season, but also has grown the size, damage inflicted, and cost of fighting them. Whether it’s lower snowpacks, drier springs, longer summers, or disease and damage, the forest’s trees are dying, and those dead trees present the perfect tinder for forest fires.

No Clear-Cut Solution to Clear Cutting Controversy

The practice of clearcutting in forest maintenance is a frequent subject of controversy among professional foresters, loggers and the general public. People don’t like clear cuts, most markedly because of the appearance of forests after the process has been completed. Foresters remain committed to advocating for the benefits of clear cutting to the long term health of forests. So the challenge becomes how can we balance the long-term health of forests with maintaining their full, natural appearance.
