Province of Peycore
Usually plantings would involve several steps:
After the forests were established limited homesteading was opened up to individuals interested in maintaining forests. Homesteading was limited to prevent the area from being logged and turned into farmland. Over the centuries Peycore has remained largely a lumber province. Fishing has also become a staple industry out of Picaso City.
Lumber harvest has been carefully controlled. After a region is harvested it is carefully replanted for regrowth. Cuts are performed in an ecologically sound manner. Many different types of trees were planted early on. Many regions of slow-growth trees were given a long growth period before harvesting began, and once it did, it was paced so that there would always be a supply of slow-growth lumber. As a result, in the current day, Peycore has millions of acres of hundred year old Oak, Black Walnut, Redwood, Sequoia, and many other trees noted for there beauty and their lumber.
The forest planting program was put in place early on, starting in the late 400's. Picaso City began forming in the early 500's as early forest homesteaders and fisherfolk began moving in. The province of Peycore itself was formed in 647. Peycore is the second smallest province, larger only than Farland in population. It remains a somewhat rustic province.
