ah food forest gardening proven right again.

one thing I discovered this year..we lost several trees to the emerald ash borer, and when we removed them all of a sudden we had a drought..the grass in our paths and trails all over where the trees had been removed..dried up and turned to straw !!! The trees were holding that much moisture in the area..hopefully the area will recover..but we are still loosing trees to the emerald ash borer...thankfully ash is coppice-able..and some of the stumps are sending up new shoots of baby ash..so it may help to quickly reforest the area, although the baby ash may also die.
 
Seriously? That's what you're going with? I prefer this tiny ad:
