Humans need to be educated about the current issues of the forests in order for us to save, preserve or sustain these places that provide us with so much. Humans depend tremendously on the world’s forests, but yet were the ones destroying them. For humans, the forests have many aesthetic, recreational, economic, and cultural values. Timber and other products of the forests are important economically both locally and as exports. They provide employment for those who harvest the wood or for those who make products from the living forest.
The Drooping Trillium prefers to grow in rich beech-maple, oak-hickory or mixed deciduous swamps and floodplain forests which are usually associated with watercourses. It is thought that the presence of a watercourse could benefit the plant by creating well-drained soils that combine both loam and sand which the species favours (Jalava and Ambrose 2012). It grows on the forest floor with native plants including Ostrich Fern, Wild Ginger and Jack-in-the-pulpit (Ministry of Natural Resources 2013). Forest-canopy cover is important to the survival of the Drooping Trillium by maintaining ground flora as well as reducing competition with other species; however the penetration of some light is beneficial to this species (Jalava and Ambrose 2012). Drooping Trillium seeds are found to be dispersed by ants and possibly by white-tailed deer (Ministry of Natural Resources 2013).
Clearcuts offer economical application, since temporary spray irrigation or solid spreaders may be used. The disadvantage is that applying high nutrient levels will increase weed growth and subsequent small mammal populations, making establishment of trees difficult. Application to young forests eliminates tree survival problems. However, overhead application is required due to small tree heights. This dictates that application be d... ... middle of paper ... ...es.
