Hello from the UK. It great to be on your forum.  I have looked at some of those very good videos and they make me feel home sick. I grow up on a farm in the 1950'  Then worked in the entertainment industry, a carpenter. I have always had a feeling for the outdoors. I travels in Canada three times, living in the bush and visit different local Indian groups. Cree, Ojibwa and Dena.

I was searching for a link with nature. People that live close to the land, have a knowledges of the land, a sixth sense, rather than the modern Industrial agri business. I studied conservation, trees and short term coppicing, SRC. This is the growth of fast growing trees Willow and Poplar as a bio mass crops. The plan I am working on involves more, its not just fuel. A re-creation of an ecosystem. The old field boundary, a complete habitat, which is sustainable. I look forward to sharing ideas, but most of all gaining more information. Take care.

Hello treecare and welcome.  I'm not too far away from you geographically, just south of Normandy in France, but we used to live in the UK.

I'm interested in your ideas about field boundaries.  We have made kvashegen fences with old wood and prunings but this winter I'm going on a hegde-laying course to learn to make better use of the stock that we have.

Enjoy
