Treemagedon From Space

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.

    Are those solar panels next door?

    Yes!! The neighbors heat with propane, but they have solar hot water! (Though I think what you are seeing is actually their garden beds– only a speck of their solar installation is visible in the photos, at the far right on their extended roofline.)
