Michael Judd says that if permies.com brings in $5000 to his kickstarter, then permies.com can decorate an entire page in his new book! I'm not sure what we would put there just yet, but the opportunities for comedy are endless!
We have cut down a lot of trees and shrubs in our landscape after moving in. For now, they are simply piled up in the back 40, and I'm thinking that it will act as a very low maintenance mulch until we are ready to use the wood for stick fuel or hugleculture. I had a pile that had been there previously and was surprised to find that after we had moved away all the logs and remaining sticks, there was a good layer of composted mulch underneath.
In the piles that we do have, I've noticed a lot of grasshoppers (and in turn birds). But I haven't noticed the grasshoppers in my garden that bad. Any advantages/disadvantages I'm not thinking of? I know it won't look that great for a while, but I'm not too concerned about it as it will be just temporary until the wood is used elsewhere. Other option is to haul everything to greenwaste, but I would rather we kept it and used it.
