How Forest Management Helps Protect Wilkes County

When people hear terms like logging, they picture something unsavory, but in reality, when forest management is done properly, it can help the environment.

Environmentally Friendly Logging in Wilkes County, NC

  • Wildfires are most commonly associated with forests in the West; however, forest fires can also occur right here in our area. Environmentally friendly logging can help in decreasing the risk of a fire on your land.
  • A timber harvester's job includes deciding which trees to cut. As part of the process, unhealthy trees are cut down and removed. This helps to keep fungus and bacteria from spreading and harming nearby trees.
  • Environmentally friendly logging helps reduce competition within forests; replanted trees will be able to get the nutrients they need to grow strong.
  • Forests can be dangerous because dead or sick trees fall at inopportune times, like when you are hiking in the woods. This can be dangerous. Forest management ensures the removal of harmful trees as soon as possible.
  • When replanted forests mature, wildlife habitats can recover better than they were before the timber was cut.
