"One way we can do this is to honour the ancient indigenous practice of returning the dying trees to their ancestral communities. Having lived their natural life, they will return “home,” where they will be used, amongst other things, to provide warmth and light. We have much to learn about not wasting the gifts of nature. "
I guess no other cultures have learned to use a tree cut down for building houses, making furniture, for firewood, etc.
As I was reading that, I was thinking, "it looks like they'll use the fallen trees as compost in an urban forest, which sounds alright."
...then in the next sentence we learn it's becoming firewood. So I'm not even sure what they're talking about. Are they saying the firewood will be delivered to one of the First Nations nearby to be used as firewood, or to a rural part of our region to be used as firewood? It's a bit confusing. And who wastes firewood even in our society? It's scooped up asap by people with wood stoves. Nothing is wasted.
