Right paulownia is also  a tree i mistakenly mentioned as growing from a batata, a sweet potatoe, i had planted, it possible that a few years before i had put a been of a paulowian tree therea and when it came up and turned into a pauloownian tree i thought the tree had grown from the sweet potatoe . Are you nit picking , I hope a mistake doesnot condtitue a reason to not believ all the other stuff that helps lands be productive and that i spent a long time researching. rose i thik its you that is looking for me , mind you i am provokative enough to get variouse people hunting me .
    In  wHich forum did you give the list of tree that serve for forage when i looked the trees in th elist up  what i read was really interesting. it made me want to plant the trees of the list in an imaginary world in which i had live stock tha tneed forage. rose .

Bird, I had lost the post about the diferent forage tres and i would like to know which one it was to refer to you as the authro of th einformation.

  I  have just been reading up about forage trees in india in the thar desert where the bishnoi people died before lettign the kings men cut down their trees, in the seventeenth century, if i remember right. , The khejri in india and in the arabic peninsular ghaf tree and in latin prosopis cineraria. a lumuminosa with edible leaves and beens that feeds camels and goats an dwho beans feed members of the horse family to. that has deep roots that bring up water i suppose and that favour the pastures at their feet .
 
  It must be fun whatching people trying to ride cows . i suppose that is what bucking broncos do but they do somthing unpleasant to make the animals buck, don't they. rose.

Rose I did put a link about saltbush in permaculture -what to do with land that has salted up- but i hane not posted about mahogany trees, we do have African mahogany here but predominately they are only shade trees, people are looking into these for furniture timber (mono Cropping them), local schools are all removing them as a safety precaution though as a young child was recently killed by a falling branch from a tree that was not well maintained ond had grown far too large for a school shade tree. its a shame some poor child had to die for them to admit that mahogany, a tree renouned for dropping branches is an inappropriate tree for a school setting

hello bird , Do you live in haiti you live some where in the tropics don't you? Are you all right?

  Do the charities keep money back at the begining to build up Haiti later, not much seemed to be getting there WHen doctor Sanjay gupt went to the airport it seemed to be empty., Were they holding out on the Haitans? I think the charities fill their coffers in a crisis, so they can go on with all their activities, what i had not imagined was that they would go so slow on spending money on the crisis in hand that they would not do nearly enough there. If there are government run social services they get it in the teeth at the least suspicion of them doing somthing wrong, if they are charitiy run charities no one thinks to ask them any questions, THat is one of the advantages of government run social services.

    From a permaculture point of veiw, what do they export, import in that big port of theirs. Is it bananas and such, tropical fruit? Would  the people of tropical countries be better off if they ate their own produce instead of being dependent on the money they got for the food they produced?

    Would the distribution of money, that must be  easier than that of goods, have allowed the Haitans  to buy theri own produce, there is produce all year round in a tropical country isn't there, from the hills. The lack of good thinking and fast seems to have  been apocaliptic. THe only person their worth anythign as far as organisation was concerned was Doctor Sanjay Gupta of CNN. rose macaskie.
