"Cut and pull" technique

  • In natural forests we find species that fulfil different strata and functions. Some will survive and spend many centuries there. Others will take the first steps, sacrifice themselves for the members of the forest and offer their corrupt bodies to the system. These species of sacrifices favor the forest, improve the structure of the earth, feed other trees and help new seeds.
Baso naturaletan badira gazterik hiltzen diren zuhaitzak eta beraien gorpu ustelek basoa aurrera ateratzen laguntzen dute eta lurraren egitura hobetzen dute. "Ebaki eta bota" teknikak ideia hori aplikatzen du landatutako basoetan. Argazkia: porvenirdesign.com

Zarata mediatikoz beteriko garai nahasiotan, merkatu logiketatik urrun eta irakurleengandik gertu dagoen kazetaritza beharrezkoa dela uste baduzu, ARGIA bultzatzera animatu nahi zaitugu. Geroz eta gehiago gara, jarrai dezagun txikitik eragiten.

Assuming this idea, we can plant species with the same goal in a cultivated forest. These, in most cases, will run low or between production species to fill gaps and take advantage of the sun’s rays. The aim of the slaughter species of edible forests is not their disappearance, but their permanence for as long as possible, offering over the years a necessary service to the entire ecosystem. Therefore, when we cut or can these organisms we will do it with a sense, without dying at all, taking care of the time of pruning and violence of action.

As for the time, spring and fall are the best, both when it rains and when the temperature is right. Summer is usually too dry and hot for wounds that spread, while winter is too humid and cold. If a pruning occurs in the spring, you have to do it when the leaf is fully developed and if you opt for the fall, you have to start before the leaf completely disappears. Autumn pruning will help control the size of the tree or shrub, reducing next year’s absorbers.

For the implementation of the "cut and pull" technique, any plant, tree or shrub that has a high degree of recurrence can be used. The best known of the herbs is the cascarilla, which spreads very easily, as it produces enormous biomass and with its long terrons many foods emerge from the mother rock.

In shrubs, the queen is the olive tree. The Eleagnus family has an enormous capacity for re-emergence and offer huge amounts of nitrogen laden biomass. Besides being fixing nitrogen, bees and bugs are attracted to their flowers and fruits feed birds.

In the case of trees, ash is an indigenous tree that can be used for this purpose, as in addition to being an excellent degree of reappearance, it can be offered to the animals to graze. Eucalyptus can also be used, due to its enormous reappearance and rapid growth. Once the forest is planted, if we want to remove the eucalyptus tree, we will have to stay a few years on top, without letting a single leaf develop.

Even if it seems controversial, forests don't exclude foreigners, they integrate diversity, they make them indigenous. Maybe we have to live the forest longer and learn something from it.
