What Came Home from the Forest

Our friends, George and Kate, invited us to come to their property in the hills above Philo to thin Douglas Fir poles out of a densely growing patch of trees mixed in with Redwoods and native hazelnut. We cut down 7 or so very tall doug firs and afterwards you could feel the remaining standing trees breathe in the space and light. We learned that it is not necessarily planting new trees that sequesters carbon but giving the space to old trees allows them to sequester more than a new tree is able.
This next shot shows Lucy, Janet, Nic, Tom and Corey and Marco unloading poles from our trusty workhorse, Warren, the '66 Ford F100.
This is only the beginning of the story. Please bear with me. More to come!
