This is interesting how one topic leads to another. This time I came across some information about the Siberian Taiga Forests. Apparently the age of the Siberian Forests is estimated to be around or under 200 years. This is somewhat bizarre because the Siberian region was, for the most part, an uncharted territory well into the early stages of the 20th century. The lifetime of the Siberian Pine can reach up to 850 years. There are plenty of other trees out there whose lifespan is around 500-600 years. Yet the Siberian forests are estimated to be approximately 200 years old. This is explained by major wild fires happening from time to time.
Periodic stand-replacing wildfires (with return times of between 20–200 years) clear out the tree canopies, allowing sunlight to invigorate new growth on the forest floor.
The above explanation is very convenient for some areas, but can not account for the entire Siberian region.

With an area of 13.1 million square kilometres (5,100,000 sq mi), Siberia accounts for 77% of Russia's land area, but it is home to just 40 million people—27% of the country's population.

I do not think that total, human infused deforestation of such a vast region was possible in the 19th, or early 20th century. Demographic data simply does not support it. As it was mentioned above, current population of Siberia is approximately 40 million people. You can reference Geography of Siberia to see that there were barely any people out there.

Also, I think this issue of "200 year old trees" will encompass way more than just Russian Siberia. A fairly good portion of the Northern Hemisphere above, approximately, the 40th parallel north, could be affected. That I will try to elaborate on later in this article.

First thing we need to understand that areas kin to California Redwood Forests, Oregon Redwoods Trail, and Quinault Rain Forest Valley on the Olympic peninsular are rare exceptions.

There is probably a reason why the above are located within the same coastal vicinity anyways.

Also we do have some old trees in various locations, but those are single occurrences, and usually have some sort of a commemorative plaque next to them.

tree_plaque_1.jpgtree_plaque_2.jpg

To gain some sort of an understanding of how old a tree is, I would like to recommend this Tree Age Calculator. It might surprise you, when you plug in the tree data on your local "big" tree. It just might be that it is only 75 years old.

Well, let's get back to the Siberian issue. We will start with the 1908 Tunguska Meteorite. The event itself is not in question here. Mind that there was no known commercial, or any other type of logging activity conducted in this remote area.

tunguska_event_map.jpg

We will simply inspect some damages to the surrounding vegetation.

tunguska_meteor_1.jpgtunguska_meteor_3.jpgtunguska_meteor_2.jpg
It can be clearly seen in the above photos that the trees in the area were fairly young in 1908. Their size uniformity indicates that they were of approximately the same age. No huge old trees can be seen. You are welcome to google-check for your self.

Now let us look at some of the photos of the Siberian region attributed to the early 20th, and late 19th centuries.

In the above photos is Russian Taiga approximately 100-120 years ago. Just below are the photos of the same vicinity but taken recently. It is estimated that an average age of the forests in Siberia is just under 200 years old.

Below you can see a tree life expectancy table I google-translated. But I do not see those 500 year old forests in the pictures above. And there can be none, because there were very young trees in Siberia in the beginning of the 20th century. If you want to see what a 500 year old tree looks like, here they are, all stand alone. They are rare and protected.

Tree_Age-1.jpgTree_Age-2.jpgTree_Age-3.jpg
While natural explanations, like fires and logging are plausible enough, it is also naive to think that all the woods recycled themselves one way or the other. Of course for the lack of a better explanation we have to accept the "fire and logging" theory.

Bizarre Fire Breaks

And than you have these bizarre fire break type perpendicular lines cut through different chunks of wilderness. And those lines do not care whether they go through a river or over a hill. They just stay straight and perpendicular to each other. I have no clue what kind of technology was used to line those up. How do you cut those through the Siberian forest, and what for? The area below is 10x12 miles, but there are tons of those. One of the images has grid lines in case you want to find it on your Google Earth.

Map_grid_siberia.jpgMap_grid_siberia_1.jpg

There is one place in Europe where multiple old trees were located. Of course our scientists assigned them a non-surprising age of 8,000,000 years old. Yes, this is supposedly the age of the stumps you can see below. They were dug out from under feet of sand and dirt in Hungary. Non-fossilized but yet they are supposed to be dinosaur old.

stump_prehistoric_1.jpgstump_prehistoric_2.jpgstump_prehistoric_3.jpgstump_prehistoric_4.jpgstump_prehistoric_5.jpgstump_prehistoric_6.jpg
This way the first floors of the buildings in this article also have to be 8,000,000 years old: Mud flood, dirt rain, and the story of the buried buildings. Jokes aside, I think that a very similar "mud flood"event caused the death of these trees.

* * * * *

Then I googled for some pictures of Washington state, along the I-90 corridor, west of snoqualmie.

snoqualmie-washington_1.jpgsnoqualmie-washington_2.jpgsnoqualmie-washington_3.jpgsnoqualmie-washington_4.jpgsnoqualmie-washington_5.jpgsnoqualmie-washington_6.JPG
But guess what, they are not over 200 years old either. Using the same tree age calculator, they might be close to a certain degree. I did see some bigger trees out when hiking, but they are very rare and hardly reach 300 years old. The mass is definitely within 200 years. Surely, no logging was done there 200 years ago. There could be none in 1820s.

Here is a few older photos of some locations in the state of Washington.

usa_forests_1.pngusa_forests_2.pngold_washington_trees_1.jpgold_washington_trees_2.jpgold_washington_trees_3.jpg

Once again, there are some old trees, but there is no forest of old trees. If you go up higher to the Mt. Rainier National Park you can see some huge Douglas Fur trees at the Grove of Patriarchs. The area is snow free June through October, and the elevation is 2,200 feet. Some of the furs are claimed to be thousands years old. But the area where they grow is very small. It proves that old trees used to be in the area. A few survived, and the rest did not.

The uniformity of the other "all over the place" forests suggests a much younger age. Considering that the life span of the majority of the evergreens is pushing 650-900 years, this is bizarre. Of course if you do not consider another bizarre fact: the map shenanigans of the North American continent.

Below I display several iterations of North America as presented by our ancestors. Watch the progression from one map to the next. Time makes a huge difference.

Map date: 1564 - 1570 - 1590 - 1630 - 1642 - 1647 - 1694 - 1716 - 1744 - 1797 - 1847

1564_map_america.jpg1570_map_america.jpg1590_map_america.png1630_map_america.jpg1642_map_america.jpg1647_map_america.jpg
1694_map_america.jpg1716_map_america.jpg1744_map_america.jpg1797_map_america.jpg1847_map_america.jpg

It appears that a very long time ago, in the 16th century, there was a specific understanding of the outline of the North American Continent. But then something happened and the area became Terra Incognita. With time it was rediscovered and thus it reappeared on the map, this time with a differently looking outline. Could this be an event related to the other weird geographical, and urban transformations like the emergence of Sahara Desert and burial of the buildings? May be it could.

Is it possible this event killed huge tree masses in the Northern Hemisphere. I think it is.

P.S. question: do you have old forests with 500+ year old trees in your area? (forests, and not single trees)

I think we do not give enough credit to those cartographers of the old. You can not make a map of the world without proper level of technology available to you. Their maps consist of more then just outlines. They are very detailed inland as well. How many surveyors it could have required, I do not know. I'm not even sure you can do it by manual surveyor power alone.

there are also some photos that shown the area around the great wall of china, completely cleared of trees
Things definitely come together when you start paying attention. Weird how everything is related. Even the Wall is claimed to face the wrong way. That I can not confirm, but some people do say that it is facing South, instead of North. They go back and forth with debunking, and confirming.

Any ideas of what "after the Christian era" time frame this article is talking about? 3,000,000 square miles of submerged land is a lot. It’s like half of Russia.

With an area of 13.1 million square kilometres (5,100,000 sq mi), Siberia makes up roughly 77% of Russia's total territory and almost 10% of Earth's land surface (148,940,000 km2, 57,510,000 sq mi).

This is just an idea and I haven’t found good articles to back it up completely but here goes. Could the permafrost have melted and released methane and a resultant explosion? This could have happened to all northern areas and not just Siberia. Could it also have created a mud flood ? Makes me think of that layer of sand in North Dakota, Michigan (even dunes).
Started thinking about this when looking at that Russian day of darkness- it was mentioned.
Also how does the flash freeze in Siberia figure in?

In terms of dating this event something I read about the first pioneers to those area in the US always stuck in my mind..
I can’t remember the exact area, but around the Dakota’s, diaries of the first pioneers stated that there were no insects or birds and the quiet drove people crazy. Insects/birds soon came in after the first settlers.
The theory was it was empty for thousands of years and the insects/birds left. Perhaps it was the opposite and the prairie was very young...

As I posted on a different thread, climatic conditions (I bet around 1200s), related to probably a cataclysmic event (tsunami) flooded northern
boreal areas, and that's why not only in siberia but in canada we have a very few trees above 200 years old age.

Canada's Boreal Forest Trees Age.
https://www.nrcan.gc.ca/sites/www.nrcan.gc.ca/files/cfs/assets/file/484

Then, these northlands were sometime flooded catastrophycally, and as it appears to be some sort of magnetical change (north pole)
changed weather (as it's clear those areas had warmer weather some millenia or even some centuries ago). That situation avoided trees
to grow up there only until 200 years ice recession allowed that, and historically and even current nowadays had a depopulation effect.

So, "under-water" conditions avoided trees. And by the other hand, sink holes, circular in shape craters, counted on thousands in north
siberia suggests methane release. But this release as the trees age, only in the last 200 years.

I don't take for sure the Druzhinin's theory of "ancient bombs".
Batagaika Crater, Siberia





But methane release in the recent years.



It seems from northland boreal areas, flood came to southern side of the maps.

Azerbaijan: Land of Fire and Flood – Ancient Mariners and a Deluged Landscape - Graham Hancock Official Website

Then, we have this insteresting place around black sea and caspian sea as the cradle for the caucausian ancient asian cultures.
Have you noticed where from came to america caucus pre-election meetings?



So it seems caspian sea, black sea, azov where flooded from the north.



And even we have mud flood evidence in the geological sediments.



Well, this "cradle" of culture, as I suggest came primary from northern lands (Aryans), or to say so "hyperboreans".

The particle -AZ (where Asia/Azia comes and Azer Baijan comes) it means in old slavic (glagolithic) "inner knowledge" (intuitive knowledge).
Ases (from nordland mythlogy) Asia/Azia. You see this important place around black sea (by the way, DNA of paracas skulls are related to
black sea either), so you know the history of usual blonde or red haired people, RH-, blue eyes, etc, etc.

This place called Khazaria, I want to mean the relationship between Khazars/Cathars, who he owns the lands, who he owns the castles.

Just let me remind you the world wide star fortress (castles, all around the world and covered in dust in northern areas).



So, Khazars/Cathars, in the cradle of "Aryan-Asia" (Az). Then we have Casar/Qasr (arabic) term for castle or fortress.

Qasr - Wikipedia

Al-Cazar, Al-Qasr, Caesar, Kayser are all related terms. So the aristocratic line of the people who "owned the starforts".



These northland areas came to be formerly (tartaricus ocean)

Lukomorye - Wikipedia

Then again, AZ Asia and Khazars/Cathars and Ashkenazis.
Particle KN, relates to knowledge (KNowledge, KNiga in russian or book, KNesset israeli parliament, or KNossos Cnossos the Creta's knowledge
temple). We could follow to original jews (karaites or people of the book). Kennedy irish surname appears to have a very old aristocratic roots.

Ashkenazi (eastern jews), or AZ (inner mind) KEN (knowledge) Azi. People who kept ancient knowledge.

And we could follow to jews, bogomils, templars and current world wide finantial control.

Guess I didn’t notice- where,what, who?

Your theory sounds good, however I think the khazars were perhaps faked by the enemy as it’s kind of late, but what we read of their history (all converted) could be fake too.

I was directed to this thread so I'll add something related, since the danish forests are also only 200 years old and we're also located in the northern hemisphere.
For most of us, the beech forest is the epitome of Danish nature, but the truth is that the Danish forest is created by us humans, and that we need exactly 200 years back in time to find the cause. In 1805, Denmark had become virtually forestless. In many places Denmark resembled an African savanna with old trees here and there, and occasionally the animals went and grazed. Only about 2 percent of Denmark's total area was covered by forest, so there was more than far between beech trees
But we who work in the woods are celebrating an entirely different anniversary this year than anyone else when we look back on 1805. That was the year when the King, Christian VII, signed the Fredskovs Ordinance. The lack of forest was a disaster for the country. Wood was used for almost everything; houses, ships, firewood and tools. Without wood, we had almost no way of coping.
the real man behind the Fredskovs Ordinance was not the king himself, but his prime minister, Count Christian Ditlev Frederik Reventlow. He had a property on Lolland, Pederstrup, where all the forest was not yet completely eradicated. He set out to find out how trees really grow in a forest and how best to ensure that both beneficial trees and viable forests are obtained at the same time. The lack of timber, combined with Count Reventlow's ideas that Denmark should be self-sufficient in timber, convinced the king that it was now time to act. The Reventlow family owned several estates scattered around Denmark, and Christian Ditlev Reventlow got help from the rest of the family as the many ideas were put into practice. It was not easy, as all new forest areas had to be surrounded by stone fences and earthen tufts to keep the livestock out and tell the common man that here you should not go logging. And it took time.
The magnitude of the disaster - a Denmark without a tree - seriously dawned on us two years later, when the British, after the bombing of Copenhagen, ran with our fleet. The king immediately sent for oak trees so that the fleet could be rebuilt, but received the laconic response: "We do not have enough oak trees to build a new fleet."
I don't know how much of this is true but this is the official explanation in Denmark. I could look into Count Christian Ditlev Frederik Reventlow if you're interested but at this point I don't have much to share about him. In comparison around 16% of Denmark is now covered by forest.


The above are pictures from the 1800's that everyone learns about in school but I never thought about them in this context

Yes, perhaps but we are speculating. This is what has been written down, it does no make it true/untrue. Would be interesting to find an account that contradicts this one.
