It hurts my heart to cut down living trees but, fortunately most of the ones that have to go are already dead where they stand because of a previous fire. And most of the live ones are cedar trees, which my son intends to use for support beams when building a large loft in Blue.
The hardwood that was removed has been cut to use for firewood, so nothing is being wasted.
I mention that because I was absolutely appalled at the number of people who
suggested that I clear cut the Two Acre Wood or, worse, rent a dozer & and push all the trees into a pile & burn them. Honestly, wtf is wrong with people?!?
I chose this property specifically because of the trees & I am not clearing any more than necessary for us to live on it. Folks need to do better. Anyone know how to summon the Lorax? Cuz I know some people they need to pay a visit to...
