My Chile Trip: Tree Farms Cover the Landscape



Very early into my trip I quickly noticed the forests lining the Route Cinco (main highway) were tree farms.  Hectares and hectares of tree farms populate the landscape of Chile.  Forestry is a major industry in Chile and tree farms are a big part of it.  We don’t necessarily think of tree farming as agricultural but on the Chilean landscape it seems much more integrated.  Both of the above pictures were taken from canola fields which shows that grain farming and forestry must coexist side by side.  This is something we are not very used to in Canada.   You can see in the below video that the trees are uniform and easy to spot in comparison to natural forrest.  Chile is known for its rainforest species that are not found anywhere else in the world.
