Responsibly Harvesting for Healthy Forests

Harvesting cypress and other trees is an essential forest management practice that promotes forest succession, biodiversity, and overall forest health. A reality of sustainable forest management is that growing trees need sunlight, soil, and nutrients, and they grow more rapidly when older, larger, and more mature trees do not crowd them. Harvesting also helps prevent the spread of disease, pests, and wildfires, which disrupt the natural role trees play in the carbon cycle.
