Why not to make forestry a bit more exciting activity than a simple industrial process? Forester can insert texts -and any other pattern by the way- with 3 different methods.
1.: single plantation or outcrop (positive text), 2.: cut-out (negative text), 3.: different species (canopy color/structure differences make text visible), also combinations of these can be exist.
Examples from Russia and Ukraine, primary collected by DjDeeeeeen (oGEC):
Nice text "LENIN" example for this latter type from Belarus, I have read about on the web:
This is my first own find: number '2000' made of a plantation of other kind of trees than the surrounding forest-species, somewhere in Ukraine. (as an example for a mixed solution.)
Since, I have managed to spot further 3 by myself and several other locations provided by different sources, so have decided to put all together, with all references given of course.
Lot of these collected so far are Soviet slogans from former states of the USSR and Yugoslavia, but any other scenes and purposes are possible, as one can see following thread below!
Any additions are welcome!
