... Seeking the Light ...

A gap is a space that is suddenly created in a forest when a large tree falls or otherwise (including human-caused cases). When a gap allows light to shine into the forest, the surrounding trees begin to compete for this light. Compared to conifers, broadleaf trees tend to grow by bending over in seek of light. If you find a large space in the forest, it is worth observing the surrounding trees.

大きな木が倒れるなどして(人為的な場合も含む)、突然森の中にできる空間をギャップといいます。ギャップにより森の中に光が差し込むようになると、この光を求めて周りの木々による成長競争が始まります。広葉樹は針葉樹に比べて、光を求めて自らを曲げながら成長する傾向が強いのです。森の中に大きな空間を見つけたら、周りの木々を観察してみる価値はあります。

Supporting photography in a beautiful mixed forest of cypress and zelkova trees, 112 years after planting. It is believed to be an attempt to grow high-quality zelkova lumber by suppressing zelkova branching with surrounding cypress. It is said that the purpose of the project was to use the wood for military purposes, but looking at books on the use of wood left behind from the Meiji era, we can see that many things were considered, and we surmise that the project was done as an advanced and high-level effort to secure superior timber.

森林撮影のため、112年前に植林されたヒノキとケヤキの混交林をご案内しました。ケヤキの枝張りを周囲のヒノキで抑え、良質なケヤキ材を育てる試みだと考えられています。軍需利用が目的と言われていますが、明治時代に残された木材利用に関する書籍を見ると、様々なことを考えていたことが窺え、優良材確保のための先進的で高次な取り組みとして行われたのではないかと推察しています。
