Trees and Sustainable Communities


-- Quote of the Day -- 

 “If you want my final opinion on the mystery of life and all that, I can give it to you in a nutshell. The universe is like a safe to which there is a combination. But the combination is locked up in the safe.


~ Peter De Vries – Let Me Count The Ways

Join me for a live 1/2 hour radio interview on the Funky Writer, with Rob Batista (host) @ 2 PM Mountain / 4PM Eastern  ...Today's interview will also be archived so you can access it at your convenience later on.



I was a guest on Rob's show back in 2009... and have been invited to come back as one of his "favorite guests". I feel honored to have become one of his favorites. :)

You’ve probably heard of problems with beetles infesting forests and killing trees by boring into them to make homes or safe places for their larvae and often sucking the plant juices from the trees. The problem is not just the death of the trees, but that they then become a fire hazard, and sometimes a safety hazard as they are more apt to fall over during a storm. So what a lot of communities have done is to harvest the trees before they decay and create more jobs in their region by taking the wood and making valuable, and often beautifully colored flooring, roofing, and furniture. In Cincinnati, they created the Urban Timber company that collaborates with the park board and many local businesses and school programs to create products that are sold, and the proceeds raised are used to replant new trees in and around the city.
