Why forest operation is important to forest health?
If you are not actively managing your forest then the forest isn’t growing to its full potential. If managed properly through thinning, the forest won’t naturally die off. By taking out the underprivileged trees you are doing what nature does only you are doing it early enough that it lets in vital light, space and nutrients that trees need to grow fast and healthy.
