Plant Western Red Cedars or just buy trees for others to plant!

  • March 16, 2013 · 11:00 AM

Come help plant some of the 300 Western Red Cedars I procured or simply make a donation to buy more or contribute to the effort to grow some great insect and weather resilient trees as a legacy for the next generation!

Please pack a lunch, bring lots of drinking water, rain gear, good sturdy boots and a shovel.

Yeah more trees, more O2, more shade, and great building material for the next generations!!  This is a small but important beginning as in general one plants 400 trees per acre. We will be interspersing these trees into the existing canopy to diversity the alders and maples.
We'll be meeting at my house and heading up for the day.
If you're just signing up to make a donation, then just shoot me an email that you wont be coming and that you are just making a monetary contribution.
Thanks,
FionaRhea

    The next generation will build homes from many materials, including materials used today such as brick, mud, clay, cob and stone. Homes can be constructed in living trees through processes of grafting and training plants along a matrix as shown in this Ted Talk, http://www.ted.com/talks/mitche...­ homes can be built from a variety of plant based materials which minimize the ecological damage such as using plant derived concretes or such strong natural fibers as hemp and bamboo. The truth is, trees provide a rich supply of nutrients and are absolutely vital to forest eco-systems. When trees fall naturally they return to the earth as nurse logs which support a plethora of biological life while dispersing much needed nutrients to the top soil harvested from deep beneath the surface where only trees can penetrate. The next generation, I hope, will appreciate trees only for their natural wealth as opposed to material applicability. :)

      We used the trees to make mushroom logs for the mushroom workshop! I still have 200 cedar seedlings to plant are you interested in helping get them in the ground?
