“Catch! calls the Once-ler.
He lets something fall.
It's a Truffula Seed.
It's the last one of all!
You're in charge of the last of the Truffula Seeds.
And Truffula Trees are what everyone needs.
Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care.
Give it clean water. And feed it fresh air.
Grow a forest. Protect it from axes that hack.
Then the Lorax
and all of his friends
may come back.”
― Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
Fun movie. Just watched it with my girls this week...
Hurricanes = the entire gulfcoast and now with climate change, almost the entire East coast.
Pretty sure they had hurricanes in on the east coast before climate change like even in dating back to pre Cloumbian times, The Gulf is only plaqued by mutiple threats each year where as the eastern seboard is threatened every few years but there have always been hurricanes up and down the east coast or at leas tthe threat of them.
Also don't discount Tornadoes, they are much worse when combined with saturated soil. Shear wind force alone is well above what a hurricane can do.
so have any of you people who are ruining your properties by clearcutting them ACTUALLY had a danger or a tree fall on your house?
Its not common. Trees dont just fall over, they give you lots and lots of warning.
Unless you live in florida.. and then yeah. Hurricanes.
During Sandy I had three large trees come down in my yard and I'm in the NYC area. I just missed catching a 75 foot cedar becoming airborn flying 50 feet horizontal and hitting a large hardwood tree and knocking that one over on video. I'm also having three large trees that are over my house removed this year. Well worth the price for the peace of mind.
This if you have crap trees around your house like pines. Everyone in our neighborhood is rushing to have contractors cut down their pine trees after all of these recent severe t-storms we've had. I agree with the other poster that said to plant flowering trees/fruit trees. Pines are death traps though. I don't care how long they have stood..
That's an interesting observation that goes against everything I know as a long-term Floridian. We've had 4 trees fall in our yard in the past 10 years, due to hurricanes and whatnot. None were pines (though we have several). Every single one was an oak. Every incidence of tree damage that I know of (friends, family, etc) have been oaks - never a pine. Pines have a very deep tap root, whereas oaks have very shallow roots that can't hold when the ground gets saturated.
