Sweden was hit by several severe forest fires last summer, and already in the easter holidays ravaged several fires in the south.
The modern forestry development during the last 50 years is the reason for the resulting emergency wokspace in which we find ourselves. Forest clearing and subsequent scarification are the methods that create our forest fires.
the extreme drought and needed not much impact for a fire to occur. Some fragments sufficient for self-ignition is possible in the heated humuslagren which can be up to 100 degrees in the broiling sun where the deleted forest previously shadowed undergrowth.
the Thunder also contribute to fires, but to a lesser extent than what one might think, except in the overheated clearings where the lightning is easier to ignite. Preparing the soil with tillage causes dehydration and lowers groundwater levels, which becomes even worse during long dry periods, something we will have a lot of in the future.
It is so dry in the chips to the planting of new forest in the growing the desert landscape is wasted. Last summer destroyed the seedlings for tens of millions of dollars because of the increasing extremvädret, and another set of seedlings to an unknown number and amount of dried off and died.
a surprise? Hardly. It is a familiar phenomenon that if you stand to the hole on a pack of moist content, it dries out in the heat. So is it also with the huge surfaces of markberedda clearings – they dry out and the heat goes way down in the earth.
the Forest products industry is not so unsympathetic that they are not aware of these effects. Their specific area is the most important and the side effects they consider themselves not to be responsible for.
In June 2017, came in a research report that showed that large amounts of carbon dioxide was released; at the ploughing of the land. The researchers therefore asked farmers to stop ploughing and to markbereda as little as possible in order to avoid this previously unknown serious side effect.
A fresh research from the university of Eastern Finland shows that the original composition is not necessarily going to be restored after it is cleared.
no research in order to understand what is happening with the forest. Ordinary common sense and powers of observation that stretched over many years goes a long way.
the Upheaval is probably the greatest cause of dewatering. The first observation that can be done is possible only for few minutes become overgrown. Where 70 years ago there was open marshland, it is now the forest without any trenching has occurred. Yet another reason to be very prudent with dikesplöjning and scarification.
Nothing of the most beautiful words in the regeringsförklaringen is feasible if the destruction of the forest may continue. Forest felled binds no carbon dioxide. On the contrary, they emit tilled clearings disastrous amounts of carbon dioxide.
before the new plants begin to consume the carbon dioxide. Fires, storms, and pests will probably destroy the new plantations.
Harvested forest binds no carbon dioxide. Soil conditioning emits in place of unimaginable amounts of carbon dioxide and is one of the main reasons for climate change. Deforested and markberedda surfaces contribute with a lot of elevated temperatures and drought, and reduced groundwater levels. Researched smoke emits huge amounts of carbon dioxide that no one really knows the size of.
the Knowledge of how to minimize the fires have been around a long time. When Umeå was burned in 1888, it was agreed afterwards that planting avenues of trees, with birch trees in the entire city. Deciduous forest has the property to counteract the fires. Of the reason is also mixed forests with a high proportion of deciduous trees is a good protection against fires.
