the trees cut down just for firewood?
The Mesquite trees are protected; we only use
trimmings, thinnings, dead
trees and wood which has fallen from the tree.
are laws in Mexico that now prohibit
the taking of live trees, and
to preserve the health
of the trees and provide a sustainable fuel
only trimming or thinning is allowed by law.
The origins of our orchard woods,
Almond Apple Hickory
Olive Orange Pecan Walnut
are trimmings, thinnings or simply removal
of aged trees that have stopped producing
or nuts to be commercially viable.
When the trees are removed, normally
trees are planted (unless the farmers decide
on a different crop). All these woods are a
by-product of the agriculture industry
Don’t forget that firewood is a crop and needs to be
taken care of and harvested.
