Wednesday around the World

Pine trees grow super fast in New Zealand. They are used mostly for
paper products.
We saw these train cars filled with trees in the South Island being
taken to the docks for shipment overseas.

I have seen a lot of the timber too, But still in the forest. Or in the middle of town too. :(

I share two posts today. First post...spring, next one heavy snow. A quick change from spring to winter

In Germany is the Kauri-Wood the Hit at the Moment. Sure that you know this tree.
It must be a very big tree, because the tables are really big and bigger.
A nice day to you and greetings from Germany

It is fortunate that the trees grow fast by the look of how many trees there are there

That is indeed a lot of logs! I love wood dearly when it's used in homes and furniture, but I also worry we use too much of it. Forests like these that are planted specifically for use are a good way around it, I think!

We certainly don't yet live in a paperless society (and Sharon's comment made me smile and realize that -- hopefully -- we never will).

That is some photo. I know that they grow the trees for a purpose but a part of me still wishes that they would just let them be trees.

Shalom. I've never ever seen logs stacked on a train, wow!
Here in Israel we have millions of pine trees but they were almost all planted and are not meant to be cut down and used.

Reminds me of when I lived in Oregon. They also make paper there which is not a very good smell. Love the forest though!

I have seen the ports in Wellington loaded with trees going overseas. I have not seen the rail cars that take the trees to the port. Thanks for a photo of this.
