Other tree nuts

Today I added Brazil nut to the Nuts and spices section because it is legitimately a forest product. I did not yet add other tree nuts such as hazelnut, almond, cashew, and pistachio, as these days those trees are mostly grown in cultivation for the food crop. However, they were all originally (and still are to some extent) harvested as wild products in forest or woodland. Does anyone else have an opinion on this?

Hi, Invertzoo. Thanks for this helpful addition to the navigation box. Rather than including articles for all possible nuts, many or most of which are from trees, my initial approach was incremental, with the idea of adding links to those articles that explicitly address their collection in a natural forest environment. Thus, were there to be content on 'gathering hazelnuts in the wild', either in the hazelnut article, or in a separate one, then that would be a good one to add here... Kind regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 19:17, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that seems like a good idea! Invertzoo (talk) 20:00, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Tannin and tanbark as NTFPs?

I'm uncertain whether tannin should properly be considered a non-timber forest product. From what I've read, the predominant methods for extraction of tannin involve harvesting of trees and destructive extraction from wood. Any expert advice on this? Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 13:04, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

The comment/ query, above, applies to tanbark, as well. Regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 14:18, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
