I read that tree roots feed as long as they aren't dormant, and they aren't dormant unless the ground they're in freezes.

Isn't a 12 foot hole just a bit excessive?
I'd like to see more a'la Joseph Jenkins style. Anyone else using his model?

In this case, I imagine putting "the structure" (whether an outhouse, or something similar for a tree bog) on skids. So if for any reason you wanted to move it to a different spot, you could.

How about using soldier flies or some type of bug to get rid of the waste. When I think of it, I know rats would go after it also (look up "King Rat"). I hesitate to suggest it because I have an illogical "thing" against rats. Bug, snakes, spiders are ok, but RATS, UGHHHHH!!! But speaking of converting waste and closing the system, could we also use insects/rodents? possibly setting up some way to trap them as they left the area and using them as duck/chicken/fish food?
