Japanese produce lumber without cutting trees: Daisugi


Shoots from the base of the tree are pruned so that the trunk stays straight.


The technique results in a harvest of straight logs without having to cut down the entire tree. Although originally a forestry management technique, daisugi has also found its way into Japanese gardens.


Not the most exciting narrators, but… Quite cool!

Would this scale and can we use this elsewhere to avoid cutting down trees?
