Trees as fulcrum for Rural development

Without the internet, it is possible to live everyday life, but without trees and plants, it is not. Ralph Waldo Emerson states, “The seed of a thousand trees is in one acorn.”

Various rural men and women have long been interested in protecting and cultivating trees on farmland and forestland in many parts of the country.

People in rural areas have a complicated connection with the trees surrounding them. The primary purpose of these organizations has been to guarantee that rural people have access to locally valuable tree species.

There is a wide variation in how people grow and maintain trees in developing countries. It is influenced by the local ecosystem, agricultural land use patterns, cultural traditions, local demand for wood and wood products, tenure rights, and economic pressures on landowners’ and landowners’ rights.

As of 2008, the Globe Bank projected that forest and non-forest trees contributed more than 1.6 billion people’s livelihoods worldwide.

Data on valuable species for farmers in the agroforestry industry suggests that lumber, medicines, and fuel are the most common applications of trees on farms. It’s not all bad news: Numerous trees help farmers prevent erosion and offer shade and shelter.

Not just rural residents but even city residents and businesses that see the value of tree planting have taken the initiative to do so throughout the nation.

A government requirement mandating that at least 33% of new industries in states to be founded employ BIOTIC RAW MATERIAL like herbs, bushes, and trees instead of ABIOTIC is long overdue.

When you consider the number of businesses that depend on metals, chemicals, and other natural resources such as limestone and other rocks to do their tasks, it is easy to see why. An increasing number of wealthy societies are becoming more polluted.

As a result of our inability to find a satisfactory solution to this issue, we are left with increased pollution, which is a far more serious problem.

When trees are chosen for a certain end use and processed using the appropriate post-harvest technology, it is feasible to use them to their full potential. There is no question that we will be able to turn them into a pivotal point for rural development.

It is important to consider the carbon footprint and the water impact of a species when choosing one over another. To supplement current government assistance for paper pulp, the government should encourage non-effluent businesses such as veneer and plywood mills as well as particleboard and compressed wood mills as well as MDF (medium-density fiberboard) manufacturing units for furniture and building wood products.

It is also recommended that the employment of gasifier technology in decentralized electric power-producing units be promoted in addition to the preceding.

Cow urine, as well as beneficial microbes such as azospirillum, phosphobacteria, pseudomonas, Trichoderma viridi, VAM, and others, can be used to make biochar, according to the manufacturer. Because of leaching, our lifeless and parched soils have been devoid of critical nutrients, which may be replenished by using this increased biochar in the field.
