【森の「お母さん」】

【森の「お母さん」】

今年の母の日は5月10日。みなさんはお母さん向けのプレゼント、用意されたんでしょうか。

さて、木にも「お母さん」と呼ばれる木があります。...
種子を採取したり、接穂(つぎほ)をとる樹木のことを母樹(ぼじゅ)と呼んでいます。

また森の中では、樹齢数百年にもなる巨樹のことを、畏敬の気持ちから「マザーツリー」と呼ぶこともあります。

檜原村の「FSCの森」にも樹齢250〜300年ともいわれる「マザーツリー」があります。まわりの杉やヒノキはおおよそ30年前後で伐採されていく中で、「マザーツリー」だけは残りました。
この森を管理している田中林業さん曰く、伐採する木と残す木があるそうです。

以前、こちらのフィードにも「木も寿命がある」という記事をアップしましたが、多くの杉の木はだいたい30年くらい、何千年という樹齢がある屋久杉はまた別の種類の木です。

その中でも、丈夫さなど成長具合で、「この木は残しておこう」という木が数本はあるとのこと。
木材を産出するための人工林の中のマザーツリーはその中でずっと残ってきた木です。

数百年にわたる森の記憶とともに、その行く末を見守りながら生き続けています。

☆檜原村のマザーツリーはこちらの記事でも紹介しています。

    of course like your website but you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I'll definitely come back again.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd really appreciate it.

    Currently it sounds like Drupal is the best blogging platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

    I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
