Some Habitat Improvement Pictures (Pennsylvania)
I was once told that musicians are the most gifted at managing very large projects and programming very large computer programs. Musicians think in terms of the simultaneous development of themes over time. They know that percussion and wood winds, brass and strings must all develop the theme in a harmonious way. Not section of the orchestra can be put on hold. It simply does not work.
The author of this post goes by the handle "rrroae". He has my deepest admiration. rrroae is a sophisticated guy. He does not carpet bomb a plot of ground with one "super plant" and walk away. Nope. That would be like an orchestra of tubas, or kettle drums. He thinks things through, used what was already in place.
He composed symphonies with a shovel.
He also takes great photos and writes well.

|"...by the pond, we've planted various oaks to include Sawtooth, Dwarf Chinkapin, Red oak and a couple varieties of Okois hybrids."|
|"The Dwarf Chinkapin seedlings from Superior trees were around $1 per seedling and have grown very well."|
|""Clearcut leaving oaks to reseed and also planted various crab seedlings."|
|"Added some clearcuts and planted pear, crab and apple seedlings and some dwarf chinkapin oaks. Picture only shows a fraction of the work area."|
|"Open woods between clearcut areas. Very diverse timber including Hard and soft maple, cherry, ash, popular, white and red oak, hickory and beech."|
