I just read on circlejerk that some trees can reach 100ft to 300ft in a matter of a few years, if this is true why dont we just farm trees instead of cutting down rain forests?

I mean it seems possible, you might have to stick to certain types of wood but still, on top of that you could plant a shit load more trees to help with climate change.

I'm no expert though, just some thoughts.

You have a few misconceptions in your original post and I want to tackle them:
>some trees reach 100ft in a few years
Sure but they're not paper or wood or otherwise suitable as they're mainly height grown and seen as "weeds" in the forest.
>why don't we plant those?
Because then we'd get shitty paper and shitty wood. We also have no shortage of pine oak maple, etc trees. Tree farms are efficient enough. Especially in Canada.
>rainforests are cutdown for wood
Rainforests are cut down for arable farmland. NOT for wood. Mainly Brazilian coffee farms approved by corrupt officials in the South American public office.
>planting trees for paper
Hemp can produce 2-5x more plant fibres per acre than wood can allowing for stronger and better paper. They grow quicker, too.

What we need is a genetically modified tree that grows fast but produces quality lumber.

Oh wait you said lumber. The trees up here in North Ontario are SO GOOD for producing lumber. Ground is perfect for it, too. We plant as we remove wood and lumber is the cheapest place in the entire world as a result (even in China) for large amounts of logs and shit.

So far, we don't "need" such a genetically modified tree since these trees already exist and smell great. I love taking a 20 minute drive to the lumber patches near my house. Smells awesome.

Do you think one of the reasons its illegal is because it would replace tree made paper and other tree made things?

That sucks man, we dont even need that crap.

Something happened that made it illegal but I'm not going to explain the long and complex history of anti-weed propaganda.

There was a family guy episode where they made weed legal and then it became illegal when the lumber / paper industry lobbied against it lmao.

They don't cut down the trees to use them. They cut down the trees to use the land they were occupying.

Also, the faster a tree grows, the shitter the wood is. Slow growing trees are denser and therefore better building materials.

Usually.

Hemp is not a tree.

He is right, otherwise and as a general rule of thumb.

bamboo and hemp are both very strong in tension but also very flexible and therefore not very strong in compression. there are different kinds of strength required for different applications
