Longtime readers will recall last fall’s Treemagedon project, in which we set out to eradicate the invasive Norway maples on our property (14 in total) and, as a by product, provide a couple years worth of heat. Well, the good people at Google have captured the results from space. Yes, I know it looks like we set off a small nuclear warhead in the yard. But it will get better. Already bursting onto the newly-liberated scene is an understory of wild strawberries and some small native cherry trees. We also planted some native redbud trees, ferns, and cattails down in the swampy part. Meanwhile, I am putting the finishing touches on the drying and stacking of all the firewood produced.
