Trees and site design

Is it possible to plant too many trees? They can always be thinned, transplanted, used for construction or firewood, but they’ll only grow if they’re planted now. We’re planting another hundred trees on the next two Saturdays, beginning May 2, 11:00 AM. Join us!

We’re starting a sugar bush (planting sugar maples) and filling in the windbreak on our west boundary. The winter was hard on some of the trees we planted last year.

Next week we’ll have exciting news, the results of a senior design project by students in Civil Engineering at the University of Wisconsin, Platteville. They’ve drawn a couple options for the site design at Stone’s Throw, and estimated a number of costs for the development (infrastructure) work needed before construction begins. We look forward to seeing their ideas, and sharing them with you!
